Description

"Keep your eyes open," Jamie hears her Grama Bowman says. "The knowing of some things comes when you're older." Whether Grama Bowman is showing Jamie hoe to peel birch bark in the spring sun to make baskets, or how to hunt for the winter tracks of Wokwses the Fox, or how to sing the welcoming song of her Abenaki people, every moment they spend together opens Jamie to a new world.

Then one morning Grama Bowman is gone. But Jamie's quiet walk in the woods tells her that her Grama is still very near. Grama Bowman has left Jamie her world - a place where Jamie will never be alone.

Inspired by a story from his own family, Joseph Bruchac's first picture book is a take of the intuitive understanding between the young and the old. The beauty of the natural world is captured in Paul Morin's warm, shimmering paintings, making Fox Song a book that is as familiar and loving as a visit with a friend.

About the Author
Joseph Bruchac was born in Saratoga Springs, New York, and grew up in the Adirondack foothills. He began to take an interest in his Abenaki heritage when he was a teenager. Mr. Bruchac has written many books, poems, plays, and short stories—most of which include tales, characters, and teachings from his Native American roots. Performing as a storyteller allows him another way to preserve his Abenaki culture.
