My Name is Not Easy by Debby Dahl Edwardson

My Name Is Not Easy by Debby Dahl Edwardson is based on true events that happened to Eskimo and Indian children in Alaska about half a century ago, many of whom were sent to boarding schools. The book follows three brothers (based on the author’s husband and his two younger brothers) and about half a dozen others through the first half of the 1960s. Parts were interesting, parts were heartbreaking, parts were shocking. It is well written and captures the thoughts and feelings of the children quite well.
