Out Of The Depths book.

Out Of The Depths book. The vivid descriptions had my crying along with the author. The book was very powerful, and helped in my understanding of residential schools. Though it puts you through an emotional roller coaster, it was almost impossible to put down.

The true stories of Mi'Kmaw children forced to attend Indian Residential Schools in Nova Scotia are beyond heartbreaking. One can't help but admire the straightforward storytelling of Isabelle Knockwood as she describes the sense of pride and courage buried deep within small children as they struggle to survive in a world filled with depravity and pain. I have know about that since I was kid, however I haven't seen a copy of the book since then. I decided to purchase one.

Isabelle Knockwood tells the disturbing story of an Indian Residential School where abuse of Native Children was so severe that 50% of students died in the care of these schools. Indian Residential Schools are the only schools in Canada and the USA that have grave yards of students. I recommend reading this book.
