How a People Die by Alan Fry

Its Saturday morning on the Kwasi Reserve. The citizens are red-eyed and bleary, their shabby houses littered with empty bottles. But this Saturday is different. Last night while her parents partied, a baby girl died in her crib, her body crusted with filth and sores. RCMP Corporal Thompson stirs up a hornets nest when he charges the infants parents with criminal neglest. But who, or what, really killed Annette Joseph? Tell us how a people die, one character says, and we can tell you how a people live. When How a People Die appeared in 1970, its chilling picture of a culture mired in squalor caused an international sensation. Now, as a plague of substance abuse and suicide sweeps Canadian reserves, it is more timely than ever. In a new introduction, author Alan Fry offers alternatives to the bleak future he envisioned in How a People Die. . . .required reading for anyone who is seriously concerned about the [present] social turmoil. -Vine Deloria, author of Custer Died For Your Sins and God is Red Come on Indians, dammit yes, read this book and get angry. -David Monture, Indian News
