I read a library copy of this book ages ago and recommend it strongly. It documents what happened here in Michigan with the old practice of forcing Indian students to abandon their culture by moving them to boarding schools. That is a highly sensitve issue in Native American history. Beyond that you will learn a great deal about the Anishinaabe, Michigan's own Native Americans. Today elders are trying to preserve their language and culture so this truly is a Tree That Never Dies.
