Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese

Douglas & McIntyre, 186 pages, $23

 

"He may not have meant to, but B.C. author Richard Wagamese captures the beauty of hockey as few sportswriters could hope to match.

His new novel, Indian Horse, is not essentially about hockey. But Wagamese's elegance in describing the game's power to fulfil, however temporarily, the needs of an aboriginal boy raises hockey to a kind of spiritual level."

Quill & Quire » Books of the year 2012: fiction | IndigenouslLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Quill & Quire have named Richard Wagamese's book Indian Horse to be one of the best fiction books of 2012.

 

"Indian Horse is the story of Saul, a young Ojibway boy who lands at a residential school after his parents abandon him in the bush. The ritual abuse and humiliation suffered by the students is devastating, but the novel is shot through with moments of joy, as Saul discovers a passion for hockey and a possible escape from his bleak surroundings. As James Grainger writes in his feature review, “Saul is portrayed clearly enough to function as a believable, engaging narrator, but he also operates as a kind of allegorical figure in a larger, spiritual drama of personal and communal trauma, endurance, and recovery. Wagamese pulls off a fine balancing act: exposing the horrors of the country’s residential schools while also celebrating Canada’s national game.” "
