This important book will appeal to readers of both local and national Canadian history as well as to those with an interest in sustainability. Both subjects are presented from an Indigenous perspective still largely missing from mainstream publications. Activists involved in environmental and First Nations causes will find much to learn from and be inspired by. -- Ursula Pflug, The Niagra Falls Review
...it should still be catalogued in every provincial and university library. The publication of this book clearly accentuates that there exists in the Native community an active and articulate group of writers who will continue to press ahead with the First Nations agenda. -- John W. Friesen, Canadian Ethnic Studies
