I am an old white male trying to understand our first nations situation.
Maybe I should have been better informed long ago, maybe I should have decide to look into this long ago. But it is now.
This book was kind to me in explaining the historical background I should have already known but I'm not playing catch up. The books is not accusatory, but it is a truthful narration of a brutal subject.
Each chapter begins with historical background followed by the personal story of one child, the parents, the others who care, and the wider community. So sad. And there is more to these deaths that has not been discovered, and likely never will because of a trail gone cold, and police that never cared.
I read only non-fiction because I'm pretty focused. But I enjoy non-fiction, but the highly capable author writes with the flow of a good novel, sadly a story with many sad endings.
Thank you for this book.
