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 is excellent account of the narrator's journey to and from the residential school system. How he rises out of the muck through his singular focus on sport to gain respect and admiration, only to lose it again. Such a good story teller is Richard Wagamese.
