Question- “Why do you think the author wrote this story?”
My opinion- Waubgeshig Rice wrote Moon of the Crusted Snow because he lived in reserve as well. An Anishinaabe community can go through a lot what people can write about, his novel has a perfect example on what people in a dark community would react or do. I think the author wrote this story because he was wanting to tell others about how different things happen in a small community and you could make a story of a difference between towns and your personal experience on living in a small community. Waubgeshig Rice said,”In my work as a writer I manage a ton of setting, particularly when you’re giving an account of Indigenous issues and networks. There are a great deal of things you need to disclose to individuals concerning why things are how they are today”.
