Thirty Indian Legends of Canada by Margaret Bemister. Illustrations by Douglas Tait.
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 sixty years ago and it’s now back in print in a reset, 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 of 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 universe.
Margaret Bemister was born in Winnipeg in 1877 and grew up in Manitoba. After spending many years as a teacher on the Prairies, she moved to Vancouver. Her previous books include The Golden Caravel, Stories from Prairie and Mountain and The Arrow Sash.
