Rising with a Distant Dawn is a powerful and moving poetry collection, which stretches across the boundaries of skin colour, language, and religion to give voice to the lives and experiences of ordinary Aboriginal Canadians. The book captures timely personal and cultural challenges, and ultimately shares subtle insight and compassion. The poems embrace anguish, pride, and hope. They come from the woodlands and the plains, they speak of love, of war, and of the known and the mysterious, they strike with wisdom, joy, and sadness, bringing us closer than ever before to the heart of urban Aboriginal life. David Groulx proves, once again, that distinctive voice of Aboriginal Canadians must be heard.

David Groulx was raised in the Northern Ontario mining community of Elliot Lake. He is proud of his Native roots – his mother is Ojibwe Indian and his father is French Canadian. David received his B.A. from Lakehead University, where he won the Munro Poetry Prize. He also studied creative writing at the En’owkin Centre in Penticton, British Columbia, where he won the Simon J. Lucas Jr. Memorial Award for poetry. David has written five poetry books and his poems have appeared in over a hundred periodicals in Canada, England, Australia, Germany, Austria, Turkey, and the USA. He lives in Ottawa.
