Overview

Named a "Best Novel of the Decade" by Literary Hub

Saul Indian Horse is a child when his family retreats into the woods. Among the lakes and the cedars, they attempt to reconnect with half-forgotten traditions and hide from the authorities who have been kidnapping Ojibway youth. But when winter approaches, Saul loses everything: his brother, his parents, his beloved grandmother?and then his home itself.

Alone in the world and placed in a horrific boarding school, Saul is surrounded by violence and cruelty. At the urging of a priest, he finds a tentative salvation in hockey. Rising at dawn to practice alone, Saul proves determined and undeniably gifted. His intuition and vision are unmatched. His speed is remarkable. Together they open doors for him: away from the school, into an all-Ojibway amateur circuit, and finally within grasp of a professional career. Yet as Saul?s victories mount, so do the indignities and the taunts, the racism and the hatred?the harshness of a world that will never welcome him, tied inexorably to the sport he loves.

Spare and compact yet undeniably rich, Indian Horse is at once a heartbreaking account of a dark chapter in our history and a moving coming-of-age story.

After losing his entire family, Saul Indian Horse, alone in the world and placed in a horrific boarding school, turns to hockey, a sport in which he has a real shot at a professional career, to escape from the indignities, taunts, racism and hatred in a world that will never welcome him.

When Saul Indian Horse loses his family and home, he is placed in a horrific boarding school, where he achieves a tentative salvation in the form of hockey, but his skill in the sport doesn't stop the hatred and indignities he has to face.
