Description

Two Trails Narrow: A Novel by Stephen McGregor follows the lives of two Algonquin young men, Ryman McGregor and Abraham Scott, who united as wannabe escapees from the harsh hands of the Jesuit priests at St. Xavier's Residential School outside Spaniards Bay on Lake Ontario. With the help of a kind man and Ryman's sister, they are successful in their escape from the priests and their RCMP trackers. Arriving home on the reserve had its good fortunes but also marked their partition. Their reunion takes place years later, when they are selected to serve as valuable Corporals of one of the best Canadian commando units in WWII. They participated in the liberation of Holland, and also meet two Canadian nurses who served in this conflict.  Set against the residential school experience for First Nation children and the looming shadow of the Second World War, Two Trails Narrow recounts the pain of a young generation of First Nations young men who were pulled into the vortex of forced battle at home and overseas. Through the eyes of two soldiers, Ryman McGregor and Abraham Scott, Two Trails Narrow is a remembrance to the courage and depth of the human spirit in an era of hostilities. This is Algonquin author Stephen McGregor debut novel.
