Product description

Review

In imagining the life of a young Cree woman, this volume provides a wonderful evocation of the wisdom and language of Cree elders taht seamlessly incorporates archaeology, ethnology, and oral traditions.
- </EM>Stephen Loring, Artic Studies Center, Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC

<EM>This rich story ... brings alive the history and language of Asiniskow Ithiniwak in Manitowapow while illustrating the cultural breadth of a dynamic community. This book is a joy to read, teach, and share with my daughter.
</EM>- Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Native Studies University of Manitoba 

<EM>The brilliant teamwork between archaelogists, the Cree, and an accomplished storyteller gives us ... a beautiful written and illustrated journey into a centuries-old world ... the books promises to be a classic of Canadian history.
</EM>- Brian Fagan, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, University of California, Santa Barbara, and author of <EM>The First North Americans</EM>
