About this product
- DescriptionThis vel chronicles one year in the life of rthwoods Native Americans in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Enriched by the author's first hand kwledge, learned while travelling among the Ojibway early in the 20th century, this fictionalised account is a valuable ethlogical record incorporating legends and traditional lifeways of the rthern Ojibway Indians. The plot centres around a young Ojibway man coming of age in a demanding physical, hence social, environment who, late in the year of this story, becomes badly scarred during a fight with a bear. Years late, Old Mosh, with the disfigured face and mauled leg, served as wilderness guide to the judge, the engineer, the banker, and the banker's teen-aged son -- John Peyton.
- Author BiographyJohn L Peyton, a native of Proctor, Minnesota, had extensive contact with the Ojibway Indians early in the 20th century. He is well known in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin as an artist specialising in the northern forest: its creatures, people, places, and events.
