""Bobbi Lee confronts white Canadian society on the ground that it stole from the First Nations of this country. A tough autobiography of an Indian woman's life from the mud flats of Second Narrows Bridge, Vancouver, to the Toronto of the sixties and seventies, Lee Maracle gives us an important sense of the tough terrain of struggle toward political consciousness which all oppressed peoples undertake. Bobbi Lee is a hopeful work for recovering the possibilities of envisioning a world where we are not beaten down every day."" - Dionne Brand
""With courage, honesty, humour and integrity, Lee Maracle has set down on paper the beginnings of her life-journey. Her story is not pretty nor is it a romantic vision, but a true and clear history of growing up Native and female in North America. This book belongs on all bookshelves alongside Maria Campbell's Half Breed. Thank you, Women's Press Literary, for reprinting this essential chronicle of a Native woman's struggle to remain whole within a society of racist and sexist ideology. Thank you, Lee, for taking pen in hand and offering your story that we, who are also Native and female, can find the hope and strength to fight for the dignity denied us."" - Beth Brant
