Product description

Review

"A searing account of how systemic racism robbed these victims of justice and continues to endanger Indigenous women and girls in Canada." --Paste

"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

About the Author

Jessica McDiarmid is a Canadian journalist who has reported on human rights and social justice from around the world. She grew up near the Highway of Tears and has been investigating the murders for the past five years. This is her first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read
By Ginette Reynolds on December 27, 2021
This book is a must read. So very well written. It was hard to put down. Every Canadian should read this book, for a number of reasons. To learn some true history and to bring awareness to one of the many serious issues the Indigenous Community faces. Its such a good read that I would even recommend it to teens.
