The people who were chosen to read this book were all wrong. They make this book boring.
The insight into the everyday life of First Nations people.
A Cree or Ojibwa person would have been a much better choice. The narrator's that have been chosen drains the life from this story.
I could not get through the entire book. The narration was too sterile.
This is a good book. Black Spruce depicts some aspects of the culture and themes that are important to Cree and Ojibwa today.
Three Day Road depicts many theme's and stories that are important to Ojibwa/Cree culture in a new innovative way.
The theme of the Wendigo throughout the story.
Poor pronunciation of Cree and Ojibwa (It made me laugh)
Niska is a character that is a healer and Elder that brings some glimmer of hope when things are darkest.
Not only does this story bring to light the residential school system and the racism native face everyday. It also is a story rich with culture and teachings. I would recommend anyone interested in the history and culture of the Cree/Ojibwa should read this book. It is also an amazing story on its own.
