Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In "Wild Rice and the Ojibway People," Thomas Vennum opens the way to our understanding not only of a unique American foodstuff but also to its importance in the lives of the Native American people whose livelihood depended on it. I bought it for the culinary information. I keep it for the cultural information that fills out so much of what I learned from a confrere of French Canadian and Ojibway ancestry. It made me want to head for a canoe and beat the rice. This book is a real find.

Fascinating and thoroughly documented . . .
I would love to contact the Smithsonian Institution, who employed Thomas Vennum, the author, to see if they have the photographs in this book.
Mr. Vennum, can you help us?
