this book resonated with me on so many levels - the hockey, the heartbreaking yet familiar account of the horrors of residential school and the setting. Many of the little towns mentioned in the book were familiar to me as someone who grew up in Northern Ontario. I loed this book.

Indian Horse was a Canada Reads contender for 2013 and won the People’s Choice award. A heart wrenching, beautifully crafted story of an Ojibway Indian faced with death if he cannot stop drinking and face his past. A harsh look at the brutalities of residential schools, set against the background of a young boy’s dream to play hockey. A powerful testament to the spirit of forgiveness and a profound reminder of a dark period in Canadian history.
