The Three Day Road, written by Canadian author Joseph Boyden, was one of the best books that I have read in a long time! It describes an Aunt’s journey to pick up, and bring her nephew home, following his return from fighting in No Man’s Land during WWI. During the canoe trip, the aunt and the soldier share their stories mixing tales of the Aunt’s life as a Native in Canada with the soldier’s stories of fighting in the trenches. The novel deals with themes of residential schools, attempts to assimilate and addiction. As the Aunt paddles, the soldier finishes the last of his morphine and they finish their stories. This story tells a sad time of Canadian and world history. It is a book that all Canadians should read!
