Synopsis

Synopsis

On September 4, 1995, several Stoney Point Natives entered Ipperwash Provincial Park, near Sarnia, Ontario, and began a peaceful protest aimed at reclaiming a traditional burial ground. Within seventy-two hours, one of those protestors, Anthony (Dudley) George, was dead, shot by an OPP officer.

In One Dead Indian, after covering the tragedy from the beginning, journalist Peter Edwards examines the circumstances surrounding George’s death and asks a number of tough questions, including: How much pressure did the Ontario government put on the OPP to get tough? As the official public inquiry attempt to shed light on what really happened, Peter Edwards’s investigation of this question brings the story right up to the present.

Praise

Praise

One Dead Indian is a very important book. If you care about democracy, and the separation of government and police, this is a must read… Edwards (is) a journalist’s journalist.”
–Laura Robinson, Globe and Mail

“(One Dead Indian) could become the catalyst needed to force the Harris government to call a judicial inquiry into the intolerable silence and obfuscation surrounding Ipperwash.”
Globe and Mail editorial

“Among top 10 non-fiction books of 2001.”
Toronto Star

“… scathing indictment of police brutality and political deception over the killing of unarmed Dudley George… One Dead Indian is a very impressive feat of investigative journalism.”
–James Cullingham, Toronto Star

“I’ve just finished reading Star reporter Peter Edwards’ gripping book on the case – One Dead Indian: The Premier, the Police, and the Ipperwash Crisis. Hours after I finished underlining, while the pages sprouted a bristling border of yellow sticky notes, my heart is still pumping with sorrowing outrage.”
– Michele Landsberg, Toronto Star

“… excellent book… This is a compelling, well-researched and important book which I would highly urge you to read.”
–Evan Solomon, CBC television’s ‘Hot Type’

“Edwards’ book is clearly written and well-researched. He has reconstructed with care a complex problem. For those concerned with social justice, this book is sometimes difficult to digest.”
–Daniel McIntosh, National Post

“We’re impressed by the quality and depth of Edwards’ research. It is a thorough and important book.”
Windspeaker, Canada’s National Aboriginal News
