Indian Horse is about the journey Saul Indian Horse, a northern Ontario Ojibway man, takes back through his life, as he is dying. For Saul, taken forcibly from the land and his family, to residential school, salvation comes through his incredible gifts as a hockey player. But in 1960s Canada, he battles racism and the spirit-destroying effects of cultural alienation and displacement.

Author: Richard Wagamese is one of Canada's foremost Native authors and storytellers. He has been working as a professional writer since 1979. He's been a newspaper columnist and reporter, radio and television broadcaster, documentary producer and the author of thirteen books.

Publisher: Douglas and McIntyre

"Richard Wagamese has seamlessly woven an accessible sports novel into the fabric of an Indigenous story of battles against history, substance abuse, and the often unrealistic expectations placed on our most gifted and talented youth." — Jury, Burt Award for First Nations, Métis and Inuit Literature
