Description

One Native Life is a look back down the road Richard Wagamese has traveled - from childhood abuse to adult alcoholism - in reclaiming his identity. It's about what he has learned as a human being, a man, and an Ojibway in his 52 years on Earth.

Whether he's writing about playing baseball, running away with the circus, making bannock, or attending a sacred bundle ceremony, these are stories told in a healing spirit. Through them, Wagamese reveals to listeners how to appreciate life for the journey it is.

This book warmed my heart ❤️

This generous offering of positive life milestones viewed through the eyes of Richard Wagamese, an extraordinarily talented writer ,is a gift. He captures the beauty and spirit of the people and events that nurtured his growth despite profound personal trauma. The narrators richly mellow voice perfectly articulates the writers eloquent prose. This is a book to savor and to reread.

Perfect Soul from a horrific upbringing

To listen to this true story of Richard Wagamese's life is very emotional, but to see how he was able to rise above the atrocities of his childhood is heartwarming.
Also Christian Backous's narration is incredible. The pain and the triumph of Wagamese's story comes out in his narration.

Beautiful

Richard Wagamese had such an amazing story to tell, and some of it was very tragic, but all of it was written so beautifully. The narration was a little bit fast so I slowed it down to 0.9 speed and it was perfect.

A Talented Storyteller!

Richard Wagamese first captured my attention with his book, Keeper 'n Me. It was a book that actually made me laugh out loud while reading it and I was disappointed to find out that he had passed away before I realized what a great writer he was. I am happy I discovered his voice though and plan on working my way through his published works. This book really resonated with me, as I listened to it just after learning of the discovery of burial sites at many residential schools throughout Canada. I enjoyed his approach to getting in touch with his own spirit and heritage - his journey was painful and yet he was able to see beyond his pain.

Excellent

I am starting to understand. This author writes with Truth, Grace and Heart. His words tell of soooo much and it all sounds poetic. His writing is as graceful as swans on the lake with various surprises popping up and again. I so very much enjoy His story telling.Ah-ho.

A story of finding connection, meaning & belonging

There are so many impactful messages in this One Native Life.

Trying to wrap your head around being a child Left in the bush - forgotten & cold.

How meaningful empathetic, supportive and loving adoptions & fosterings are to a child and how important it is.

Hearing the stories of the parents mimicking onto the children their experiences from Residential Schools through abuse and verbal assaults is so sad.

Thank you for writing this book .

Artistic, Poetic, Informative and Insightful

A beautiful memoir that poetically illustrates historical and contemporary Indigenous realities while simultaneously showcasing brilliance and excellence of a people.

A call to action for myself is to engage with, protect and respect this earth and to stand in solidarity with Indigenous peoples to upfront Indigenous rights and sovereignty.

A very descriptive and short trip through time.

The book was well done and the experiences were vast and descriptive. He seems very comfortable sharing.

Don’t Normally do this

I don’t usually write reviews, there are plenty of critics who write them. Or, people with writing skills who far surpass mine. This book was absolutely beautiful, even in the sad parts. I will be purchasing paperback copies for the family members I like, as birthday presents.

Inspiring

This performance was excellent.
I love the way the author explains his journey to find himself, good and awful, by going into little, important details about experiences. Throughout this book, he isn't just explaining his rich history and culture as a Native American, but as a human and how we all are connected, no matter what race. It's truly beautiful.

I LOVED this. Wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. Could have listened to this if it was 2x as long. Absolutely loved it.

Fantastic First Nations Memoir

Like his One Story, One Song book, this is a collection of the author's anecdotes and observations which span the course of his life. One Native Life was written three years after One Story, One Song so I listened to them backwards. Richard Wagamese was a first nations author from Ontario. Sadly, he died in 2017 at the young age of 61.

The sixty-four chapters are divided in to four groups by subject matter: Ahki (Earth), Ishskwaday (Fire), Nibi (Water), and Ishpiming (Universe). There is a minute long introduction to each group explaining the significance of each title and chapters are all pretty short. I listened on Audible and most of them were about three to five minutes long.

Richard is a great storyteller. There is some overlap with One Story, One Song but not much. One Story, One Song covered more of his later years while One Native Life covered more of his youth and young adult life. Much of this was terribly depressing as life threw a lot of bad stuff at him during his difficult childhood. In this memoir some highlights for me were his meeting with Muhammad Ali, his appreciation of John Lennon, and his private off-the-record one-on-one conversation with Johnny Cash while working in the press which was as great as you would think it would be. He talks more baseball (yay) and nature. His return to the remote forested camp area where he spent his early years wrapped this collection up and was the highlight of the book I thought.

The Audible narration was again by the actor Christian Baskous. His very distinct voice and measured manner of speaking fit the tone of most of the stories really well.

I loved listening to this book

Richard Wagamese shares his heart, his soul, and the rich culture and native wisdom of his people. If only we could all return to the depths of our roots as he has done.

doesn't deliver what it promises

i had a feeling that Canadian feel they suffered more than reality punishment. We don't know what abuse, we don't know much about addiction, anout leaving addiction, we suppose to be awed by the teaching of the elders not knowing what it it was. we are supposed to respect the ways of setting around and sharing stories a s a great act, how is this beneficial to humanity.
delusional book. waste of time.
