In Search of April Raintree is the story of two sisters, separated from their family and one another. Despite that, the bond between them grows, as they navigate a society that is, at times, indifferent, hostile, and violent. Through this work of fiction, author Beatrice Mosionier reflects the all-too-harsh reality facing Indigenous people today—as well as a message of hope, healing, and reclamation. The first edition of April Raintree, published in 1984, has since touched many generations of readers, becoming a Canadian school classic
