A Lambda Literary Award Finalist !
TEARS IN THE GRASS is a story of bold and courageous indigenous women, each in their own way, fighting personal demons and the racist attitudes of Canadian society in the late 1960s. While Elinor, a residential school survivor, has never given up her Plains Cree language and culture, her daughter, Louise, ran from the reserve as a teen and adopted white ways. Alice, who adores her grandmother, yearns to reclaim her aboriginal heritage.
TEARS IN THE GRASS will appeal to all who have lost children, their culture, their language, their land, and, to those seeking to achieve a deeper understanding of such hardships.
