"The award-winning Stolen Life is a remarkable collaborative work between a distinguished novelist and a Cree woman who broke a lifetime of silence to share her story. Imprisoned for murder at the age of twenty-seven, Yvonne Johnson sought out Rudy Wiebe, the chronicler of her ancestor Big Bear, as a means of coming to terms with her self, her past and the crime that defines her future. The ensuing story, which is told with Wiebe's compassion and infused with Johnson's intelligence and spirituality defies the grisly events of her life."--BOOK JACKET
