Joseph (Augie) Merasty was one of 150,000 children taken from their families and sent to residential schools. Merasty takes readers inside his time at residential school, where he was taught to be ashamed of his family and his culture and… where he experienced emotional and physical abuse. But even as he looks back on this painful part of his childhood, Merasty’s sense of humour and warm voice shine through. 2015.
