Documents the human costs of massive and extraordinarily rapid change in a people's way of life. When well-intentioned bureaucrats relocated the Grassy Narrrows band to a new reserve in 1963, the results were the unravelling of the tribes social fabric and the sharp deterioration of their personal morale, reflected in the statistics provided on violent death, illness, and family breakdown. The book provides an in-depth and comprehensive study of the forces and pressures that can rend a community.
