The Dispossessed: Life and Death in Native Canada
McArthur, 1999 - Indian reservations - 291 pages
The Dispossessed is an examination of the modern day stirrings of rebellion in a people physically and culturally dislocated by North American settlers. Geoffrey York's acclaimed work spent 48 weeks on the Globe and Mail's best-sellers list as the country awoke to its astute observations and opinions.
With a new chapter examining more recent events involving Canada's native population, The Dispossessed is still as relevant as ever.
Renowned and respected Aboriginal Canadian Tomson Highway provides the foreword to this contemporary Canadian classic.
