A powerful, beautifully written book, that brings together one of Canada's foremost writers and the great-great-granddaughter of Cree Chief Big Bear in a remarkable collaboration.

This is a chronicle of justice and injustice, the story of a murder, and a courtroom drama, that unravels the events that put Yvonne Johnson behind bars for life at the age of twenty-seven, first in Kingston's notorious Prison for Women, and presently in the Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge in the Cypress Hills. Above all, it is the unforgettable story of the life of a Native woman who has decided to speak out and break the silence, written with the compassion that marks Rudy Wiebe's writing and informed by Johnson's own intelligence and poetic eloquence.

Yvonne openly examines her life and, through her grandmother , the spiritual legacy she believes she has inherited: having been led through pain to wisdom, she brings us with her to the point where she hopes to offer spiritual strength in passing on the lessons and understandings of her life.
