Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An in depth look at the history between the First Nations people and the European settlers of Canada. This book of factual accounts creates a path of understanding as to how we came to be where we are today. It is heart wrenching in some places, but the window of clarity it opens in one's conscience makes it a must read for all of us.

Clearing the Plains is a worthwhile read but not for the faint-hearted. Daschuk presents an accurate picture of the suffering and death that our Native people experienced at the hands of European powers. Diseases, especially TB, became epidemic among a nation of people who, until the arrival of the Europeans, were found to be among the tallest and healthiest people in the world. Over time the bison became extinct, food was rationed by government agents, and Native people were now suffering from severe malnutrition. It's not surprising their health declined over time.
Learning about a people's past helps us to better understand their role in society today.

While the book is quite technical, and obviously a thesis, i have thoroughly appreciated this book. Very well researched book.
