"Canada's residential school system for aboriginal young people is now recognized as a grievous historic wrong committed against First Nations, Métis
, and Inuit peoples. This book documents this subject in a format that will give all young people access to this painful part of Canadian history.
Through historical photographs, documents, and first-person narratives from First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people who survived residential schools, this book offers an account of the injustice of this period in Canadian history. It documents how this official racism was confronted and finally acknowledged" --publisher's website.
