Summary The story of Chanie Wenjack (misnamed Charlie by his teachers), a twelve-year-old boy who died in flight from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School fifty years ago.
"Secret Path is the heart-rending story of an Indigenous boy seeking to escape the residential school system and return to his family. Alternately hopeful and devastating, Secret Path traces the boy's fateful journey into the wilderness, lending a personal face to a cold and distant chapter of Canada's history."--Page 4 of cover.
