Editorial Reviews

Review

“The book captures so much that is Native: cycles, the particular roles and joys of people of different ages, plants and animals as integral parts of life, the richness of lives lived simply, and our connection to the past, and thus to the future. The language is crystalline, pure and sparkling, nothing wasted; nothing more needed.” --Karen Coody Cooper (Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma), Museum Training Coordinator, National Museum of the American Indian

“Both text and pictures invite you in, not as a stranger viewing a different culture, but a welcome guest. ...It does not imbed a Native nation in the distant past. Instead, we see both then and now side by side, deeply connected, flowing into each other.” --Joseph Bruchac, Abenaki storyteller and writer

“Over and against the plethora of ‘multicultural’ writing for young children, this is the one I would choose to show them our pre-conquest lives: the balance of life, the belonging to the land and to each other, and how, for the fortunate among us, it still is that way. The traditions live, we adapt; what sustained us then, sustains now.” --Doris Seale (Dakota, Cree, and Abenaki), poet, and editor/author of Through Indian Eyes and A Broken Flute

From the Publisher

Includes afterword about the culture and history of the Lenni Lenape (formerly known as the Delaware Indians).
