"Errol Ranville has been running all his life: from chronic poverty and racism in rural Manitoba; a discriminatory music business; alcohol and drug addiction; and the responsibilities that come with being regarded as a role model. Though Errol has faced seemingly insurmountable barriers as an Indigenous performer in a predominately white music business, his band C-Weed & the Weeds released several #1 songs and went on to score JUNO nominations in 1985 and 1986. Errol was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Indigenous Music Awards in 2011. Errol's autobiography Run as One is filled with love and passion as he embraces the role of trailblazer for the countless musicians that follow his path."--Issued also in print format.Intro -- Foreword -- Note from Phil Fontaine -- Note from Eric Robinson -- Introduction -- Walk Me to The Edge -- Chapter 1 -- Magic In The Music -- Chapter 2 -- Play Me My Favourite Song -- Chapter 3 -- Bringing Home the Good Times -- Chapter 4 -- I Wanna Fly -- Chapter 5 -- On My Way Back Home -- Chapter 6 -- Run As One -- Chapter 7 -- Redemption -- Acknowledgements
