About the Author

Abenaki poet, Cheryl Savageau has been awarded Fellowships in Poetry from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and three residencies at the MacDowell Colony. Her second book of poetry, Dirt Road Home, was a finalist for the Paterson Poetry Prize. She was awarded Mentor of the Year by Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers, as well as Writer of the Year for her children's book, Muskrat Will Be Swimming. Savageau also works as a textile artist. Her quilts have recently been exhibited at the University of New Hampshire in Durham.

After graduating from University of Maryland (B.A. and M.F.A.) he was asked by the Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., to paint the murals for its bicentennial celebration; these paintings launched his career.

Robert lives in Rockville, Maryland, next to a stream and is often visited by deer, turtles, beaver and muskrats.

Reviews

The delicate artwork, done in acrylics and colored pencils, has an appealing, luminous quality. A handsome picture book that makes its statement quietly and effectively.
One of my favorite books for young readers, not just for the beautiful illustrations but for its poetic, memorable text. No children's writer I know has done a better job of putting our traditions into the context of modern times while also dealing with the issue of mixed-blood ancestry in a way that is both honest and heart-lifting.--Joseph Bruchac, author of Jim Thorpe's Bright Path
