Description

La course de Rose (Rose's Run) by Dawn Dumont of Okanese First Nation in southern Saskatchewan, is the story  of Rose Okanese, a mother of two strong-willed daughters, who decides it's time to take care of herself and boost her self-esteem after losing her job and her musician husband. She has a brilliant idea: to run the annual marathon organized in her reserve, despite the fact that she has not put on running shoes for twenty years. What she does not lack is spontaneity, and although she initially regrets being involved in this project, she gradually lets herself be led by her destiny. This one will place in its path an unexpected and formidable adversary.

French version- Prix littéraires du Gouverneur général finaliste
