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).

Heart wrenching and Humbling

I love hockey. My family has been involved in hockey since I was born. Richard Wagamese highlights the horrendous acts committed at the residential schools, and the generational effect it still has while simultaneously making you long for the arena. You follow Saul through his journey with his birth family, to the school, and again with his adoptive family. Every step of the way giving you happiness, then a reminder that weighs at the back of his mind. I found myself pausing to cry about Saul’s experience, knowing that it was a fiction based on the true testimony of many; too many. A haunting reminder of our past, our traditions, and the culture we live and breathe.
The performance was remarkable, and easy to follow. A must read (or listen) for all.

I can’t believe the vocal range of this man!! Incredible! This is the first book, with only one narrator, that I felt was like a film without visuals. I loved how his accent changed, how his tone and pitch were delivered. It really made the story. The story itself has been on my tbr list for a very long time, and I’m
So happy to have finally had such a stupendous introduction to Douglas Adams. Highly recommended!
