|Summary, etc.:||For decades, women and girls - overwhelmingly from Indigenous backgrounds - have gone missing or been found murdered along an isolated stretch of highway in northwestern B.C. The highway is called the Highway of Tears by locals. Journalist Jessica McDiarmid offers an intimate, firsthand look at the communities along Highway 16 and the families of the victims, as well as examine the historically fraught social and cultural tensions between settlers and Indigenous peoples that underlie life in the region.|
