FINALIST 2013 – Burt Award for First Nations, Métis and Inuit Literature

“As Long as the Rivers Flow casts an unflinching eye on the self-destruction that often befalls residential school survivors and their children. . . . Impressive.”
— Quill & Quire

“An extremely poignant novel that exposes the short-term and long-term damage of the residential school system. James Bartleman has skillfully illustrated an unpleasant but inescapable episode in Canadian and Native history and deserves recognition for shedding necessary light into the darkness.”
 — Drew Hayden Taylor, author of Motorcycles and Sweetgrass
 “James Bartleman combines the expertise of well-informed non-fiction with the compelling elements of fiction to tell a devastating, inspiring story. Only someone extremely well-informed and compassionate could have written it. My first teaching assignments thirty years ago were in Oji-Cree communities around James Bay. If only I’d had this novel to read then. It let me walk a mile in Martha’s moccasins, and her tracks remain on my heart. If you’re only going to read one book to glimpse what it’s been like to be Aboriginal in this country, this novel should be the one.”
 — Anne Laurel Carter, author of The Shepherd’s Granddaughter and Last Chance Bay
