    PDF A Stranger at Home eBook õ A StrangerMOBI :↠  blackswanteacouk  stranger download, home book, A Stranger download, A Stranger at Home PDFI know this is a story that needs to be told the effect of taking Indigenous children away from their parents to educate them during colonisation but this telling is uite bitter No doubt some of the situations faced were bitter but here the bitterness is turned towards making all of the nuns and brothers who undertook this education uite evil ruthless with punishment cruel and lacking affection and down right scary with their shaved heads underneath their habits Their faith seems to have an evil intent behind it and Christianity in general comes across as fearmongering and brainwashing completely missing the point of itThe illustrations are beautiful and there are some nice moments between father and daughter and when she teaches her mother to write her name but I think this book would only leave a young reader with a heavy heart and a loathing fear of brothers and nuns Is that really helpful?

    PDF A Stranger at Home eBook õ A StrangerMOBI :↠  blackswanteacouk  stranger download, home book, A Stranger download, A Stranger at Home PDFEven better than Fatty Legs the preuel to this moving story because of the sense of disconnection that Olemaun aka Margaret feels from her family and her community as a result of her residential schooling in Canada's far north and Christy Jordan Fenton and Margaret Pokiak Fenton get that sense of numbing isolation just right a brilliant book
