520    "These murder cases expose systemic problems... By 
       examining each murder within the context of Indigenous 
       identity and regional hardships, McDiarmid addresses these
       very issues, finding reasons to look for the deeper roots 
       of each act of violence." — The New York Times Book 
       Review       In the vein of the bestsellers  I'll Be Gone 
       in the Dark  and  The Line Becomes a River , a penetrating,
       deeply moving account of the missing and murdered 
       indigenous women and girls of Highway 16, and a searing 
       indictment of the society that failed them.   For decades,
       Indigenous women and girls have gone missing or been found
       murdered along an isolated stretch of highway in 
       northwestern British Columbia. The corridor is known as 
       the Highway of Tears, and it has come to symbolize a 
       national crisis.   Journalist Jessica McDiarmid 
       meticulously investigates the devastating effect these 
       tragedies have had on the families of the victims and 
       their communities, and how systemic racism and 
       indifference have created a climate in which Indigenous 
       women and girls are overpoliced yet underprotected. 
       McDiarmid interviews those closest to the victims&
       #8212;mothers and fathers, siblings and friends—and 
       provides an intimate firsthand account of their loss and 
       unflagging fight for justice. Examining the historically 
       fraught social and cultural tensions between settlers and 
       Indigenous peoples in the region, McDiarmid links these 
       cases to others across Canada—now estimated to 
       number up to four thousand—contextualizing them 
       within a broader examination of the undervaluing of 
       Indigenous lives in the country.    Highway of Tears  is a
       piercing exploration of our ongoing failure to provide 
       justice for the victims and a testament to their families'
       and communities' unwavering determination to find it.
