Description

Rarely accessible beyond the limits of its people, Ojibway mythology is as rich in meaning and mystery, as broad, as deep, and as innately appealing as the mythologies of Greece, Rome, Egypt, and other civilizations. In Ojibway Heritage, Basil Johnston sets forth the broad spectrum of his people’s life, legends, and beliefs. Stories to be read, enjoyed, dwelt on, and freely interpreted, their authorship is perhaps most properly attributed to the tribal storytellers who have carried on the oral tradition which Basil Johnston records and preserves in this book.

Contributor Notes

Basil Johnston, author of a dozen books, including Moose Meat and Wild Rice, is a prominent Ojibway ethnologist and one of North America’s most renowned writers and storytellers.

Editorial Review

“A colourful, beautiful book which teaches us about ourselves as much as about one of North America’s native peoples.”
