From the Publisher
A Canada Reads 2013 Contender
A Globe and Mail top 100 book of 2012
Saul Indian Horse is dying. Tucked away in a hospice high above
the clash and clang of a big city, he embarks on a marvellous
journey of imagination back through the life he led as a northern
Ojibway, with all its sorrows and joys.
With compassion and insight, author Richard
Wagamese traces through his fictional characters the
decline of a culture and a cultural way. For Saul, taken forcibly
from the land and his family when he''s sent to residential school,
salvation comes for a while through his incredible gifts as a
hockey player. But in the harsh realities of 1960s Canada, he
battles obdurate racism and the spirit-destroying effects of
cultural alienation and displacement.
Indian Horse unfolds against the bleak
loveliness of northern Ontario, all rock, marsh, bog and cedar.
Wagamese writes with a spare beauty, penetrating
the heart of a remarkable Ojibway man.
