Nate Wesley dreams of basketball glory, hoping to make his dad proud by playing for the Prince Rupert Rainmakers, then in the All Native Basketball Tournament. But it's a long road full of dashed hopes and tragic circumstances, as his father, Frank, knows all too well. Along comes BJ, a boy unlike any Nate has met. Talented but lazy, loyal but reckless, good-hearted but rebellious, BJ walks a tightrope, and Nate's parents are caught between his charms and the dangerous track he may take their son on. 

In his debut novel, Rudy Kelly spins a funny and poignant tale of boyhood, broken dreams, and basketball. Set in Prince Rupert in the 1960s to 1980s, All Native is a story of North Coast First Nations, a father, two boys, and the legendary tournament that binds them together.
