- A Novel
- Written by: Richard Wagamese
- Narrated by: Jason Ryll
- Length: 6 hrs and 51 mins
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).

Must read! But listen at 1.25x!
This book evokes great feeling. I enjoyed the descriptive world given to us by the author and felt deeply all the mixed emotions of the narrator. It gives incredible insight into the native experience of the residential school system. A must read for all Canadians in my mind.
The performance was well done but painfully slow for my liking. However once I increased to 1.25x listening rate, it was perfect!
