Description : Saul Indian Horse is a child when his family retreats into the woods. Among the lakes and the cedars, they attempt to reconnect with half-forgotten traditions and hide from the authorities who have been kidnapping Ojibway youth. But when winter approaches, Saul loses everything: his brother, his parents, his beloved grandmother—and then his home itself. Alone in the world and placed in a horrific boarding school, Saul is surrounded by violence and cruelty. At the urging of a priest, he finds a tentative salvation in hockey. Rising at dawn to practice alone, Saul proves determined and undeniably gifted. His intuition and vision are unmatched. His speed is remarkable. Together they open doors for him: away from the school, into an all-Ojibway amateur circuit, and finally within grasp of a professional career. Yet as Saul’s victories mount, so do the indignities and the taunts, the racism and the hatred—the harshness of a world that will never welcome him, tied inexorably to the sport he loves. Spare and compact yet undeniably rich, Indian Horse is at once a heartbreaking account of a dark chapter in our history and a moving coming-of-age story.

Description : Excerpt from Indian Horse Notes: An Epitome of Useful Information, Arranged for Ready Reference on Emergencies Specially Adapted for Officers and Country Residents; All the Technical Terms Explained and Simplest Remedies Selected A third edition containing additional (and I trust valuable) information has been prepared, as the second was exhausted, though it was very large. This book was originally only intended for use in India, but an unexpected demand for it has been made in England and Australia, and also by Officers of the United States Cavalry, which is very gratifying to me.
