Free on Kindle New Novel combines Canadian History and Aboriginal Treatment
Delighted to let you know that my new Literary History, "The Great Canadian Adventure: From Indian Country to Nation State" has been published and is now available on Amazon in print and in a Kindle Edition. It can be downloaded for free for five days, Sept. 10th. to Sept. 14th., 2014 as a Kindle download from Amazon.com.
In this novel two Graduate First Nations History students are hired to facilitate a documentary about how wonderful Treaty 8 that gave vast amounts of Indian Country to the new Dominion of Canada Government in 1899 was for the settler and capitalist populations. Themes include biased history, betrayal, seduction, identity confusion and wealthy rascist's control of media. Reading this novel should help readers realise why Canadian Aboriginals are "Idle No More" and why young, Aboriginal women are missing and not being tracked.
Here are some photos from my trip with friends to Brantford, Ontario to obtain the cover photo for the book, a picture of Chiefswood, the residence of the wonderful First Nations Poet and Orator, Pauline Johnson. The fellow with us is our taxi driver who persevered under great difficulty to find Chiefswood.
