Reviews


The poets and short-story writers who contributed here for our enjoyment leave us with the message that you are known; someone knows you exist. We carry the gift of life. We share in that experience with the spirits of nature. With their singing words, painting pictures in your heart, they insist that your life is acknowledged. Your experience is being recorded. Let's all make the most of it!
--Edmund Metatawabin, author of Up Ghost River

These voices are precious and beautiful. Mahsi cho to each of them singing the world to a brighter place. Mahsi cho to their families. Mahsi cho to their ancestors and mahsi cho to a richer world because of their courage and bravery. I am grateful and humbled and inspired.
--Richard van Camp, author of May We Have Enough to Share

The time for our own stories has arrived, our own written words, our own voices. It is through our stories that we discover our roots
