The Road Between by Florence Ore
Walking the mile-long road from the Blackfoot Reserve to the public school in Gleichen, Alberta, every day, the child, Florence, traversed the influence of not just two, but three cultures, looking for where she fit in. Her grandmother brought her manners and morals from England, her Indian neighbors shared their tribal heritage, and her schoolmates showed what it was to be truly Canadian. Throughout this lyrical, poignant, and informative memoir, Florence reveals life in that place and time of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and World War II.
