Read full description of the books:
This ancient Ojibway legend predates contact with European settlers, but the people he meets at the end of his journey couldn't be more familiar to modern culture.
This book is a Top 10 Indie Novel for Young Adults. When the orphaned Anung sets out on his vision quest, he sees clearly that his purpose in life is to find the greatest chief of all and tell him of the many acts of kindness the mothers and fathers of the village have given to Anung. When the people of his village learn of the vision, they are proud of him. For every man of the village loves Anung as his son. Every woman is his mother. They believe Gitche Manitou, the great creator, has chosen their son for a special journey.
In his quest to find the greatest chief, Anung meets many of the tribes of the First Nations. Along the way, he is accompanied by Turtle, the interpreter of all languages. He finds friends in the most unlikely of places--a squirrel's nest, a mother bear's den, and a city filled with people from every tribe. At each stop, Anung plays his drum and sings of his mothers and fathers and his quest to meet the greatest chief.
What Anung finds at the end of his journey will both surprise and thrill readers of all ages. This ancient legend, told in the beautifully poetic style of Carl Nordgren, begs to be read aloud and savored.
This book has been embraced by the Museum of Ojibwa Culture in St. Ignace Michigan. The Director of the Museum, Shirley Sorrell, calls Nordgren a master storyteller and invited him to launch the book at their museum, located in the center of the Ojibwa universe.
And financial proceeds from sales of the book will be shared with the people of Grassy Narrows Reserve in Ontario.
