Two of Canada’s most gifted storytellers shed an intimate light on the unpleasant and inescapable treatment of our First Nations.

 

From James Bartleman, the accomplished memoirist and former Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, comes a first novel of incredible heart and spirit. As Long as the Rivers Flow tells the story of a girl from the Cat Lake First Nation in Northern Ontario who is “stolen” from her family at the age of six and flown far away to residential school. 

 

When a terrible accident unsettles the peace in a small, tight-knit community, who will pay the price? Searing, brilliant and tension-filled, Incidents in the Life of Markus Paul by David Adams Richards, winner of the Giller Prize and the Governor General’s Award, is a foreboding tale about truth, lies and justice.
