About the Author

Author Larry Loyie was born in Slave Lake, Alberta. He spent his early years living a traditional Cree life and treasures the lessons he learned from the elders. He went to residential school from the age of 10 to 14, then began his working life. Larry returned to school later in life to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a writer. He received the 2001 Canada Post Literacy Award for Individual Achievement (British Columbia). In 2003, Larry was the first First Nations writer to win the Norma Fleck Award for Canadian Children's Non-Fiction for his first children's book As Long as the Rivers Flows.

CONSTANCE BRISSENDEN, longtime partner of Larry Loyie and co-author of As Long as the Rivers Flow, is a freelance writer and editor. She has assisted in the creation of more than forty-eight books as author, co-author or editor, and continues to write from her home base in Edmonton, Alberta.

HEATHER D. HOLMUND graduated with honors from the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program at York University where her main concentrations were painting and metal sculpture. Since completing her degree, Heather's artistic practice has led her to explore the exchange between the Canadian environment and the act of representation through art forms. Heather works between her studios in Pickering, Ontario, and Rainy Lake, Ontario. Her work is found in private and corporate collections, and is exhibited throughout Canada.

Loyie's quite words and Holmlund's authentic watercolor art capture the happy wilderness home...
