Ebook Description

The captivating story of Mary John (who passed away in 2004), a pioneering Carrier Native whose life on the Stoney Creek reserve in central BC is a capsule history of First Nations life from a unique woman's perspective. A mother of twelve, Mary endured much tragedy and heartbreak?the pangs of racism, poverty, and the deaths of six children?but lived her life with extraordinary grace and courage. Years after her death, she continues to be a positive role model for Aboriginals across Canada. In 1997 she received the Order of Canada. This edition of "Stoney Creek Woman," one of Arsenal's all-time bestsellers, includes a new preface by author Bridget Moran, and new photographs. Shortlisted for the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize Now in its 14th printing.
