"Yemít and Merímstn" is an autobiographical collection of short stories that reflects own experiences of the author as an Indigenous girl and woman who works continuously to transform and achieve resurgence through traditional sports, personal healing, education, and in particular, cultural and traditional practices and teachings. In this book, Nicola Campbell creatively weaves elements of land, water, language, identity, resistance, and understanding throughout her work as a powerful effort to illustrate rootedness as a decolonizing practice. "Yemít and Merímstn" is a striking and compelling work that addresses trauma and suicidal feelings, family and complex relationships, and healing and transformation, showing a process of reweaving the strands that can save life and help others to move toward a better future.

Nicola Campbell is Interior Salish and Métis author who lives in British Columbia. She has a BFA and a MFA in creative writing, and is currently working towards a doctoral degree focusing on contemporary Indigenous Storytelling at UBC Okanagan in Kelowna, BC. Her first free-verse children book "Shi-shi-etko" was published in September 2005 and was a finalist for the 2006 Ruth Schwartz Children Book Award, the 2006 TD Canadian Children Literature Award and the 2006 Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award. Her second free-verse picture book "Shin-chi's Canoe" won the 2009 TD Canadian Children Literature Award and was a finalist for the 2009 Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award and a 2008 Governor General Award for illustration. She believes it is time for Indigenous stories to focus on empowerment, rather than tragedy.
