""I write this for all of you, to tell you what it is like to be a Halfbreed woman in our country. I want to tell you about the joys and sorrows, the oppressing poverty, the frustration and the dreams. ... I am not bitter. I have passed that stage. I only want to say: this is what it was like, this is what it is still like."" For Maria Campbell, a Métis (""Halfbreed"") in Canada, the brutal realities of poverty, pain, and degradation intruded early and followed her every step. Her story is a harsh one, but it is told without bitterness or self-pity. It is a story that begins in 1940.

Naive, but powerful.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "Immensely powerful life story. Hard not to shed a tear at the shocking way life can be so different for people depending on their heritage. Hope lessons can be learnt from history."

A sobering account of Maria's life in the Canadian societies she lived in, by or encountered. Her heartbreaking experiences at the hands of others who could not appreciate the person she is.
