Summary

Summary

One Native Life is a look back down the road Richard Wagamese has traveled—from childhood abuse to adult alcoholism—in reclaiming his identity. It’s about what he has learned as a human being, a man, and an Ojibway in his fifty-two years on Earth.

Whether he’s writing about playing baseball, running away with the circus, making bannock, or attending a sacred bundle ceremony, these are stories told in a healing spirit. Through them, Wagamese shows listeners how to appreciate life for the journey it is.
