The soft and quiet tone of the book is seductive imbuing the reader with heightened sensitivity (and its consequent agreeableness). An emotional reader will likely be quickly swept away and become induced into searing resentment and a quiet arrogant bigotry (as I must confess I was initially). However, a little distance and a little thought is all that is required to see through the author's incapacity to see her own decisions and actions (and those of other native Canadians) as the source of travails they bear, and instead confabulate everything bad as coming from racism and sexism and colonialism and patriarchy (and utopianizing pre-contact native lifeways). It degrades into a racist screed against everyone non-native in Canada (though focussed on those of "European" heritage (what does a person of Moldovan or Lithuanian heritage have to do with colonialism?)), promoting negative attitudes towards everyone non-native - she (conveniently!) doesn't mention those who are, say, about 34% native (or "non-status" as they're called in Canada) - inculcating bigotry, ignorance, hatred, and prejudice. Other relevant considerations such as equality, responsibility, and liberty get little or no mention.
