Editorial Review

This book is a true gift. The stories and artwork contained within are medicine straight from the land, medicine that is needed more than ever. These stories illuminate the origins of this place and offer an entryway to truly understanding this place and the people of this land. Reading this book is like stepping into the stories our elders told us. Brought to life with vivid storytelling and gorgeous artwork these stories are a pathway to better understanding the land, the Anishinaabe, and the very origins of this place. I will return to it again and again. --Jesse Wente, broadcaster, curator, producer, activist, and public speaker.
