When We Were Alone

Price $19.95

By David A. Robertson

Illustrations by Julie Flett

When We Were Alone can help introduce the delicate subject of residential schools to young ones. This is the story about a curious little girl who spots some different and special things about her grandmother: her long braided hair; her brightly coloured clothing; the fact that she spends a lot of time with her family; and that she speaks Cree, a language that is different from hers.

When We Were Alone is the story about how one woman had the power to cope with a trying period in her past.
