This book broke my heart. It must have taken incredible perseverance and hard work to do the research but I am grateful to the author for his painstakingly documentation of the horror that was the residential school system. There are lessons to be learned from this book. What struck me most, beyond the obvious tragedy of it all, was the recurring pattern of people KNOWING what was happening, alerting the authorities, and then nothing being done to remedy the situation. Meanwhile children were living in desperate unhappiness--generation after generation of children as the rest of society around them went on with their lives, aware, but managing to put the suffering of others out of their minds.
