When Candace Savage and her partner buy a house near the Saskatchewan-Montana border| her naturalist’s instinct propels her to explore the area.She takes pleasure in the Wild West setting| discovering hidden back roads| dinosaur skeletons at the discovery center| and fossils in the dust-dry hills.
She also revels in her encounters with the land’s wild inhabitants — wolves| cougars and howling coyotes.
But as Savage explores further| she uncovers a darker reality — the little-known history of the Native people who were displaced from their homes| forced onto reserves| and deliberately starved — and finds that she must reassess her own family’s history as prairie sodbusters.
Beautifully written and impeccably researched| A Geography of Blood offers both a shocking new version of Western history and an unforgettable portrait of the windswept| shining country of Cypress Hills| a holy place that helps us remember.
