9781550173642: Dreamspeaker

First a multiple award-winning film produced for television, then a novel and winner of the 1978 Gibson Literary Award, then a perennial bestseller, Dreamspeaker is the powerful and deeply moving story of a boy caught between two worlds, who learns too late the healing strength of faith and love. In a desperate attempt to escape the institution where he has been committed and to exorcise the unnamed evil that haunts him, Peter Baxter runs deep into the forests of British Columbia. Hungry, injured and pursued by inescapable horror, Peter is rescued by an old Native Dreamspeaker and his mute companion. Through their teachings, Peter discovers the power of the Indian spirit world--and the courage to face his terror alone.

Review:

Canadian Materials Rating: ****/4
"Anne Cameron first wrote Dreamspeaker as a film script. The 1967 movie by the same name, directed by Claude Jutra, won seven Canadian film awards and was subsequently telecast on the American Public Broadcasting System and on the British Broadcasting Corporation. Then Cameron wrote the story as a novel, one which has been recommended as supplementary reading in a number of school systems across Canada and is on the curriculum of Nipissing University in North Bay and the First Nations University of Canada.
Highly Recommended."
-Ruth Latta, Canadian Materials (June 24, 2005)

"Dreamspeaker is a novel that crosses adult and children's literature boundaries in multiple ways...I would recommend that any adult who gives Dreamspeaker to a child read it along with the child and be more than prepared to discuss, laugh with, and cry over this remarkable novel."
-Norah Bowman, prairiefire
