One of the best books that I have read about residential schools. This book integrated into my classroom lessons about Indigenous rights. My students loved the photos, the stories and the live accounts about what really happened. I was shocked at all of them. Product arrived in a timely manner and quickly became part of my classroom library. It is a must to have for every educator.

I have read a number of publications about the residential schools over the past few years and this publication is beautifully written and presented. A perfect balance of images and writings that opens our eyes to a very sad and disturbing part of our Canadian history. Highly recommended.
