Product description

Review

an absorbing read, with chilling, exhaustive detail. (Adam Piette SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY)

¿It takes an exceptionally intense and clear vision for a writer to persuade us that there is anything new to be said about the Great War. Yet every now and then a book comes along that rescues from the mire and carnage a genuinely new perspective on the awful events of 1914-1918. Focusing on the rarely-told stories of indigenous people enlisted into the Canadian army, Joseph Boyden¿s first novel, is one such book.' (Laurence Wareing THE GLASGOW HERALD)

There are also lyrical moments which posses an eerie power - especially where Boyden writes about the northern landscape and the human relationship to it. He has illuminated a forgotten corner of the Great War and that, in itself is a prodigious achievement. (Julie Wheelwright THE INDEPENDENT)

Perhaps the most startling success of this book is the way it combines a tale of racial and cultural displacement with a mystic saga¿. He guides us through immensely complex stories with subtlety and grace.¿ (Murrough O'Brien THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

There have been so many fine novels inspired by the First World War that to read one that is not just harrowing, but fresh, comes as a pleasant surprise¿. (it¿s) a fully rounded work of fiction which, after a quiet opening, develops into a real page-turner¿¿. His portrait of an indigenous people who are, in their way, hunted to near-extinction is poignant and convincing.¿ (David Robson THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

a first rate read. (Jerry Todd-Jenkins CANADA POST)

Jerry Todd-Jenkins, CANADA POST

'a first rate read.'
