Product description

Review

This is a book everyone should read. (Betty Gelean edwardsmagazinebookclub.com 2011-07-19)^This memoir, detailing a woeful piece of Canadian history and demonstrating Margaret's strength of character, compassion, courage and her willingness to sacrifice herself for her family's sake, gives the reader a lot to ponder. Highly recommended. (Shelbey Krahn Canadian Materials 2012-02-17)^A Stranger at Home will speak to anyone who has experienced displacement or assimilation into a new culture. This fabulous story enhances the Grades 6 to 8 social studies curriculum. (Professionally Speaking (Ontario College of Teache 2012-04-01)^Olemaun's spirit and determination shine through this moving memoir. (Kirkus Reviews 2011-09-14)^While it may not have the same drama and tension of the first memoir, this tale provides a compelling and moving story of a girl searching for the strength to find her place in the world. (Jody Kopple School Library Journal)^Without being graphic or overwhelming, the Fentons recreate a tragic moment in Canadian history through the innocent reflections of a child...a must for any classroom library. (Canadian Teacher Magazine 2012-05-01)^This book realistically portrays the impact of residential school life on Aboriginal children. (Myra Junyk Resource Links)^This tale provides a compelling and moving story of a girl searching for the strength to find her place in the world. The writing is unpretentious and accessible and readers who enjoyed the first book will find this an interesting follow-up. Vivid paintings are a beautiful accompaniment to the storytelling. Photographs from Pokiak Fenton's own collection add important points of reference for readers looking to visualize the characters and the unique setting of the Arctic Circle. A welcome addition to biography collections. (Jody Kopple School Library Journal 2011-12-01)
