Saul Indian Horse is in critical condition. Sitting feeble in an alcoholism treatment facility, he is told that sharing his story will help relieve his agony. Though skeptical, he embarks on a heartbreaking journey from the present - and into the woods of Northern Ontario, where his life began in a snowy Ojibway camp. The tale that follows is one of great pain and great determination from Richard Wagamese, an author who "never seems to waste a shot" ( New York Times).

This was an amazing book which openly addressed the stain of Canada's unspoken discrimination and unleashed horrors of church abuses. It demonstrated the strength of the human spirit,; the power of love & the courage to rise above.

Truth and reconcilliation has a long ways to go, it begins with acceptance and understanding of what happened. Thank you Richard Wagamese.

Louise Penny expresses my real feeling of being Canadian. Some cultural confusion; a love of nature; an appreciation of good food and a well written book in front of the fire. Love her books! Will read them all! dome probably twice.
