    1. Foreward by Chief Bill Wilsonp.xviii – We are all familiar with the fiction that Columbus discovered America despite the truth that he was lost in the Caribbean only to be saved by the Native people already there. Many other myths, assumptions, stereotypes, prejudices, sophistries, and outright lies have whitewashed the real history of the continent. Now here is a book that reveals the truth about what really happened here after the immigrants “stumbled ashore.” Preface by Bev Sellarsp.xxi [...]

    2. It’s a new oral history of our nation – written down. Read it aloud!Sellars’s knowledge and experience are vast, but what gets you is her style: you feel as though you are just sitting with her at her kitchen table. Some things seem repetitious – but they bear repeating. And every point is driven home with a punchy and memorable anecdote. Every Canadian will get something out of reading this.Price Paid also acts as a perfect companion book to The Inconvenient Indian by Thomas King.

    3. “What if you owned a house and a beautiful garden? Would you share it with others? Would you welcome them? . . . What if the newcomers began to fill the house and outnumber your family? Does that make the house theirs?” In Price Paid, Bev Sellars uses metaphor to bring the reality of the colonial juggarnaut that rolled over Indigenous lands to the reader’s attention. Deeply personal, with many anecdotes from her private life and her 12 years as chief of the Xat’sull (Soda Creek) First Na [...]

    4. Bev Sellers is great author, speaker and activist. This book puts Aboriginal issues into an easy to understand format and context. I think her work should honestly be mandatory reading in Canada.

    5. Every Canadian ought to read this book. You can read my review on the Broken Pencil website. brokenpencil/news/29213

    6. This is an interesting and easy-to-read book that conveys complex material in a straight forward fashion. A nice blend of the legislative context and Sellars' own experiences throughout recent decades of change. It helps me learn about federal and British Columbian policies that thwart not only First Nations development but Canadian development. It influences how I hear mainstream media coverage of news involving First Nations. For example, the Globe and Mail coverage of last week's announced fe [...]

    7. "If you owned a house and you invited others who needed a place to stay to come and stay in your house, is it still your house?"This book gives a very good picture of the many aspects of the way in which the Aboriginal people of Canada were treated over the 150 years (and earlier) that we have been a Nation. While I skimmed a couple of the more "legal jargon" sections, for the most part I found this book to be well written, and easy to read. I learned a lot, especially about the life on the rese [...]

    8. At p 43, need to return to library. Will need to re-request. Always remember in any powerful book, there is a writer's bias and purpose.
