Wenjack | Joseph Boyden
post image
Pickpick

Joseph Boyden's Wenjack is a masterpiece, a concise, spare, and poetic story of Chanie, a nine-year-old Ojibwe boy who was taken from his home and placed in an Indian school designed to assimilate him into the Canadian culture. His escape with two other boys moves through his perspective and the views of the animals who accompany him on his journey in a beautiful, heartbreaking account.⠀

Coming in at just over 100 pages, this was a quick read. It is also a very emotional read. I just finished it moments ago, but I know it'll be on my mind for quite some time. Wonderful book.

It's been a long time since a #book had touched me so strongly. I went with the full experience of listening to the #album & #read along. Each page hurt more than the last. 😞
#SecretPath is a ten song album by #GordDownie with a #graphicnovel by #JeffLemire that tells the story of #Chanie “Charlie” #Wenjack, a 12-year-old boy who #died in flight from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian #ResidentialSchool fifty years ago. #NotCanadaProud #CanadianHistory
