WAKING NANABIJOU: UNCOVERING A SECRET PAST., Poling, Jim, Sr.
1 Poling, Jim, Sr. WAKING NANABIJOU: UNCOVERING A SECRET PAST.
Toronto Natural Heritage 2007 1550027573 / 9781550027570 First Edition Soft Cover Near Fine 
287 pp, 9" H. B&w photographs. "A woman from Northern Ontario is buried; her jewellery box reveals a mystery. Veteran Canadian journalist Jim Poling took on the most important assignment of his career: Just who was his mother? Why did she take a lifelong secret to her grave? The author searches for clues throughout Alberta and the Ontario communities of Thunder Bay and Chapleau, the CPR town where the people he believed were his ancestors played out their roles in building the national railway. A search that began in anger at his mother's secrecy concludes with an understanding of her actions. In the process, he explores the place of families within Canadian society and reveals the shameful ongoing discrimination against Native peoples and the abusive treatment of illegitimacy. Throughout, glimpses of working life in newsrooms add insider perspectives on the 'handling' of our daily news. Poling observes that Canada will never realize its true potential until positive steps are taken to resolve long-standing issues." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
