Reviews for Medicine Unbundled


"This book deserves to be widely read, and should be acted upon boldly. Anyone who cares about human decency and social justice owes a debt to Gary Geddes and to his indigenous informants. We can no longer pretend we don’t know about residential schools, murdered and missing aboriginal women and “Indian Hospitals.” The only outstanding question is how we respond."

—Tom Sandborn, Vancouver Sun

"Medicine Unbundled is not only smart, passionate, and humble, infused with respect for the people and their history, but also an important and inspiring work."

—Maureen Lux, professor of Aboriginal and Canadian history, Brock University, and author of Separate Beds: A History of Indian Hospitals in Canada, 1920s-1980s and Medicine that Walks: Medicine, Disease and Canadian Plains Native People, 1880-1940


"This is part of my story too, a great and necessary story Canadians need to read."

—Richard Wagamese, author of Embers: One Ojibway's Meditations, Indian Horse, and One Native Life


"I absolutely love this book. Geddes has done a simply amazing job of drilling deeply into this matter, and the end results are nothing less than spectacular. I congratulate him on a remarkable and remarkably important achievement."

—Paul Barnsley, executive producer, Investigative News, APTN


"Despite all this pain [Medicine Unbundled] is gentle and full of humour."

—Fish Griwkowsky, Edmonton Journal
