Description


The harrowing story of one Indigenous child's experience in Canada's residential schools

Named the fourth most important "Book of the Year" by the National Post and voted "One Book/One Province" in Saskatchewan, The Education of Augie Merasty launched on the front page of The Globe and Mail to become a national bestseller.

Publishers Weekly called the book "historically significant," and The Toronto Star recommended it as a must read for "any Canadian interested in truth and reconciliation." Writing in The Globe and Mail, educator J.D.M. Stewart noted that it "is well suited to a teenage audience because of its brevity and frankness."

This new edition includes a Learning Guide that deepens our understanding of the residential school experience, making it ideal for classroom and book club use. It also features a new postscript by David Carpenter, describing how the publication of his memoir changed Augie Merasty's life.
