This moving tribute to Native female strength, nominated for national and Saskatchewan books awards, is available in a rewritten, re-edited and redesigned edition.

In this intricate dance of language and voice, a contemporary narrator – a Cree woman – draws into the telling of her own story the poignant history of her ancestors and the European newcomers they tragically welcomed into their lives.

Grandmothers both actual and spiritual are prominent in this book of vivid characters, but many others, present and past, also appear – Native men and women, fur traders, Jesuits, Metis – all of whose stories interact in the drama of contact so brilliantly rendered here.
