HalfbreedeBook - 2014
""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.
