An excerpt from the book "There is no difference" by Peter Best
An incredibly penned and insightful and memorable article! My favourite quote - "Let the dead not the living now cast the first stone" (Nathan Alterman)
Thank you for this splendid article.
The aboriginals originally came from Russia.
Gee Peter Best, now why don't you tell us how you REALLY feel?
Just kidding. Wow, way to lay it on 'em.
I've only read two of the four books reviewed here (King and Wagamese), but I don't think I'll pick up the ones by Saul and Rae. I'll take Peter's word for it; his book reviews are pretty bang-on. I hope he'll review Valley of the Birdtail (Sniderman and Sanderson), especially the authors' proposed "solutions" to the economic dependency of First Nations in Canada.
