“Bobbi Lee confronts white Canadian society on the grounds that it stole from the First Nations of this country. A tough autobiography of an Indian woman’s life from the mud flats of Second Narrows Bridge, Vancouver, to the Toronto of the sixties and seventies, Lee Maracle gives us an important sense of the tough terrain of struggle toward political consciousness which all oppressed peoples undertake. Bobbi Lee is a hopeful work for recovering the possibilities of envisioning a world where we are not beaten down every day.” — Dionne Brand.
