Product description

Review

This book should be placed in every classroom in Canada. It is informative of our cultural way of life, and respectful of all creation. There are things that non-natives do not understand about our culture. This book will help with the understanding.--Chief Arnold General, Confederacy Chief from the Onondaga tribe, Six Nations

While the topic is a difficult one, [Red Wolf] covers the realities faced by First Nations in the late 1800's in a realistic and broad-minded manner.--Anishinabek News

With Red Wolf, Jennifer Dance has come howling out of the wilderness ... and I'm deeply impressed.--Joseph Boyden, Giller Prize-winning author

Although Red Wolf is marketed as juvenile fiction, it is a book that will appeal to all ages. Poignantly written from the perspective of both boy and wolf, it brilliantly encapsulates the fear, alienation and hopelessness felt by a child who is powerless against a system which seeks to annihilate his heritage, spiritual beliefs and family ties.--Stouffville Free Press

Dance imbues the novel with lyrical prose and lilting rhythms, and the essence of what we've come to recognize in First Nation storytelling.--Canadian Children's Book News

This book could make a big impact on the way that non-aboriginals look at First Nations people.... I strongly believe it also has a place in healing the legacy of the residential schools within First Nations communities where lack of self identity and self respect still endure.--Judith Ennamorato, author of Sing the Brave Song

Dance puts a human face to the history books by portraying the terror and confusion of a young boy ripped away from his family and forced to conform to the rules of a cruel and bigoted world he doesn't understand. What is especially impressive is how Dance manages to capture the internalized self-hatred forced upon the students of the residential schools.--Bookshelf Reviews

Jennifer Dance's Red Wolf is a heartrending, relentlessly compelling novel about the impact of the Indian Act of 1876 and the residential schools system upon indigenous cultures.

--Canadian Materials

Children and young adults alike will want to read Jennifer Dance's novel on the intertwined stories of a wolf and a First Nation boy. It is exactly the sort of story I loved when I was a boy.--James Bartleman, Former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario

Red Wolf depicts an unquestionably shameful part of our history about which today's children should be informed. The novel serves that purpose while reinforcing our feelings of outrage and disgust.--Quill & Quire
