A Geography of Blood : Unearthing Memory from a Prairie Landscape
When Candace Savage and her partner buy a house near the Saskatchewan-Montana border, her naturalist's instinct propels her to explore the area. She takes pleasure in the wild-west setting, discovering hidden back roads, dinosaur skeletons at the discovery centre, and fossils in the dust-dry hills. She also revels in her encounters with the land's wild inhabitants--wolves, cougars and howling coyotes. But as Savage explores further, she uncovers a darker reality--the little-known history of the Native people who were displaced from their homes, forced onto reserves, and deliberately starved--and finds that she must reassess her own family's history as prairie sodbusters.Beautifully written, impeccably researched, and imbued with Savage's passion for this place,A Geography of Bloodoffers both a shocking new version of western history and an unforgettable portrait of the windswept, shining country of Cypress Hills, a holy place that helps us remember.
