Editorial Reviews

"In reading this historic chronicle of the painful poverty among the Cree in James Bay, Ontario, Canada, I keep thinking how incredible it is that a member of parliament could care so much about his constituency and devote so much of his time to helping the beautiful people of the land of the Cree and Ojibway in sub-Arctic country."

— Alanis Obomsawin, Filmmaker

"Discomforting reading, but essential."

— John Ralston Saul

"Gripping. Disturbing. Maddening."

— Joseph Boyden
