Publisher's Summary

One Native Life is a look back down the road Richard Wagamese has traveled - from childhood abuse to adult alcoholism - in reclaiming his identity. It's about what he has learned as a human being, a man, and an Ojibway in his 52 years on Earth.

Whether he's writing about playing baseball, running away with the circus, making bannock, or attending a sacred bundle ceremony, these are stories told in a healing spirit. Through them, Wagamese reveals to listeners how to appreciate life for the journey it is.

Don’t Normally do this

I don’t usually write reviews, there are plenty of critics who write them. Or, people with writing skills who far surpass mine. This book was absolutely beautiful, even in the sad parts. I will be purchasing paperback copies for the family members I like, as birthday presents.

I loved listening to this book

Richard Wagamese shares his heart, his soul, and the rich culture and native wisdom of his people. If only we could all return to the depths of our roots as he has done.

doesn't deliver what it promises

i had a feeling that Canadian feel they suffered more than reality punishment. We don't know what abuse, we don't know much about addiction, anout leaving addiction, we suppose to be awed by the teaching of the elders not knowing what it it was. we are supposed to respect the ways of setting around and sharing stories a s a great act, how is this beneficial to humanity.
delusional book. waste of time.

I loved this

I LOVED this. Wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. Could have listened to this if it was 2x as long. Absolutely loved it.

The narrator ruined it

Narrator has no sense of rythm or feeling.

Really poorly read.

I want a refund because this is not worth the money
