"Richard Wagamese is a born storyteller."
"Wagamese writes with brutal clarity... [and] finds alleviating balance through magical legend."
"Wagamese is capable of true grace on the page."
"Richard Wagamese is a national treasure."
"Richard Wagamese's writing is sweet medicine for the soul."
"Indian Horse is a force for healing in our beautiful, broken world."
"Wagamese captures the beauty of hockey as few sportswriters could hope to match."
"Wagamese pulls off a fine balancing act: exposing the horrors of the country's residential schools while also celebrating Canada's national game."
"Indian Horse distills much of what Wagamese has been writing about for his whole career into a clearer and sharper liquor, both more bitter and more moving than he has managed in the past. He is such a master of empathy -- of delineating the experience of time passing, of lessons being learned, of tragedies being endured -- that what Saul discovers becomes something the reader learns, as well, shocking and alien, valuable and true. "
"Richard Wagamese's writing is exceptional not only for its sensitivity but for a warmth that extends beyond the page. With a finely calibrated hand, he explores heritage, identity, nature, salvation, and gratitude in works that quietly celebrate storytellingï??s vitality and power to transcend."

The book was well written and brought us through the many facets of Saul's life. Numerous themes are presented, keeping the story well paced and dynamic. It broadened my knowledge of the black years of the Canadian Residential School system that destroyed so many families and individuals. Just another example of the abuses perpetrated by the Catholic Church.
Saul is a broken soul, and yet we see in him a glimpse of hope and redemption, draw from his aboriginal culture and the strength and self awareness he developed as his life unfolded. I would highly recommend the book.
Thank you Richard Wagamese for a story I can share with my students!
