Thirty Indian legends of Canada

Margaret Bemister

“Weeng, the spirit of sleep. How Odjibaa won the Red Swan. Saupee and the daughters of the star. The whispering grass.

Full of mystery, a sense of awe at the surrounding world and the courage of great warriors, the mythology of Canada’s Indians forms an incredibly rich source of story and legend. Margaret Bemister first drew this collection together from original sources over 60 years ago and it’s now back in print in a reseet, handsomely illustrated edition.

Whether celebrating great journeys and feats of endurance or giving in simple but strong language a sense of identity with the land and its natural wonders, here is a moving introduction to the heritage of Canada’s native peoples. Ojibway and Iroquois; Cree and Okanagan, all are here in thirty stories of magicians, beautiful maidens and a disappearing vision of the univers.”
