Rising with a Distant Dawn

By (author): David Groulx

Rising with a Distant Dawn is a powerful and moving poetry collection, which stretches across the boundaries of skin colour, language, and religion to give voice to the lives and experiences of ordinary Aboriginal Canadians. The book captures timely personal and cultural challenges, and ultimately shares subtle insight and compassion. The poems embrace anguish, pride, and hope. They come from the woodlands and the plains, they speak of love, of war, and of the known and the mysterious, they strike with wisdom, joy, and sadness, bringing us closer than ever before to the heart of urban Aboriginal life. David Groulx proves, once again, that distinctive voice of Aboriginal Canadians must be heard.
