Frequently bought together
"These murder cases expose systemic problems . . . By examining each murder within the context of Indigenous identity and regional hardships, McDiarmid addresses these very issues, finding reasons to look for the deeper roots of each act of violence." --New York Times Book Review
"McDiarmid's touching, poignant account intricately details the backgrounds of many of the victims, and their families and loved ones. She deftly explains the continuous circle of blatant racism, depression, hopelessness, poverty, and addiction faced by the women, brought on by lack of opportunity and, frankly, by the lack of care from the government." --Booklist
"Powerful . . . [McDiarmid], writing with deeply felt emotion, makes it abundantly clear that this racism persists today [and] brings to light a little-known story that deserves more attention." --Kirkus Reviews
"This moving, well-sourced book is essential reading for anyone who cares about social injustice." --Publishers Weekly

The stories of these victims is heartbreaking. It’s maddening that so little was done to protect them and give justice. I cannot imagine being the families of these missing and murdered women.
The book was well written. I gave it 4 stars because it jumps around a bit and I found it confusing to keep track of the different people and stories.
