Praise for Halfbreed

"You can almost feel this book vibrating in your hands, it is so compelling. You read it with a kind of agonized heart-in-the-mouth sensation, halfway between laughter and tears.... Truth is stronger than fiction."--Victoria Times-Columnist

"Sometimes a book tells us what we have always known but in a way that makes it seem as if we have not heard it before."--Toronto Star

"Powerful, simple, direct, and passionate without being bitter."--CBC Radio Vancouver

"Here speaks a voice never heard before with such direct frankness, such humour: the voice of the true Canadian woman."--Rudy Wiebe, author of The Temptations of Big Bear
