Maria Campbell's Halfbreed to be re-released with author's account of rape by Mountie

 

December 20, 2018



Métis author Maria Campbell's classic memoir Halfbreed will be re-released next year with two recently discovered missing pages detailing her account of being sexually assaulted by an RCMP officer when she was 14.

The pages had originally been scrubbed from the 1973 book against Campbell's wishes,, because her publishers at the time feared RCMP would try to halt its publication.
