Author Name    Poling, Jim, Sr.

Title   WAKING NANABIJOU: UNCOVERING A SECRET PAST.

Publisher    Natural Heritage, Toronto, 2007, first edition.

Seller ID   24475

287 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 9781550027570 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 ro les 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 ong o i n g d iscrimination 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 reali ze i ts t r ue potential until positive steps are taken to resolve long-standing issues." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright. Fine
