This is the long-awaited debut collection by a widely-anthologized master poet. While it is intended foremost for an Aboriginal audience, the poetry's scope and quality create an extraordinary opportunity for all readers to see through Aboriginal eyes. There are exquisite lyrical portrayals of the Saugeen region and other parts of Southern Ontario; biting commentary on the historic injustices to First Nations people; engaging magical realism and native mythology, featuring wily tricksters and giving form to dreams; touching treatments of the bonds between Elders and children; visions of suffering and violence laced with consoling beauty; celebration of the solace of trees and water and even the company of bears; lamentation, elegy, indignation, and affection and deep love for a region and those living there.

Lenore Keeshig is a traditional storyteller, poet and an award-wining author from the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula. She currently works as a naturalist, providing education programs about the natural and cultural history of the Saugeen/Bruce Peninsula and the Great Lakes.Lenore's poetry has appeared in a number of anthologies. She has produced three children's books: Bird Talk (1991) and Emma and the Tree (1996), and The Truth About Nibbles (2005) co-authored with her husband, David McLaren. She is the recipient of the Living the Dream Book Award (1993) and an Author's Award (1988).
