The most moving novel of the First World War that I have ever read. Even more haunting is the interleaved story of the destruction of the Cree Indians' way of life. Do read this wonderful book!
My father was led away with his big hands bound behind him. I saw it all. The tiny room with no windows that they locked him in, no natural light or fresh air or game. I saw how within a week he'd stopped talking, how within a month he'd stopped eating. I saw how they kept his body from us, how they buried it underground, a place where he'd surely be unhappy.
