Big Bear: The End of Freedom by Hugh Aylmer Dempsey
In his lifetime Big Bear witnesses the terrible move from freedom to dependence. When the white settlers came to western Canada, he realized that the Cree Indians' way of life was threatened, and he fought to prevent his proud people from being reduced to poverty-stricken outcasts in their own land. Hugh Dempsey has written not just a biography but also a portrait of the Cree people.
