This book is very interesting, detail-wise. My father is Aboriginal, so I thought this book would be good to pick-up and read. One of my favourite parts of the book were the laws. One statement suprised me. If you were an Aboriginal woman, and you had offspring with a "white" man, you lost your rights. Thank goodness that doesn't exsist anymore. I'd recommend this book for the students who are taking Aboriginal Studies next year. It gives you accurate facts.
