    Right now there is a debate about books in Canada, called Canada Reads The theme this year and has been in different variations of the same theme in the last few years is What is the One Book Canada Should Read Now Invisible North is not in the running this year, and it s a shame This is definitely one book every Canadian should read now Conceivably, this book is short enough to be read in one sitting But I was unable to do

    Bravo Alexandra Shimo for your profoundly personal, painful and powerful insights you shared in this book of a trip to the Kashechewan reserve in Northern Ontario to uncover the truth behind a water crisis What the author found, in addition to an interesting water crisis story, were deplorable living conditions, staggering poverty, a cycle of defeat and a close up view of the inequities forced on Canadian First Nations peoples forc

    One of the most eye opening books I ve ever read.This book is part of my Truth and Reconciliation reading, and I picked it up one evening because I figured a memoir would be relatively easy bedtime reading, in terms of language if not content That assessment turned out to be correct it s a short book written in a very readable style, blending an account of Shimo s months on a northern Ontario reserve with background about the history of t

    I am giving this book 5 stars because for a short, concise read, this book provided vital information and understandable context that every Canadian should have to understand the tragedy of life on reserves In my ignorance of the political and social reasons for indigenous peoples entrapment in reserve li...

    Probably the best, and hardest, book I read all year.
