Medicine BearBook - 1996
The Anishinabe (Native Americans) lived and prospered in the pristine wilderness of North American long before Columbus sailed or Leif Ericson stumbled upon its coast. Little is known of the wonderful culture and intricate mythology of the Anishinabe when they lived in harmonious union with their vast natural kingdom. Medicine Bear brings the ancient world of the Native American to life. Following the seasonal migrations and rites of passage of the Odawa and Cheyenne tribes, it reveals the traditional and spiritual stories that make up the substance of a people through the adventures of Medicine Bear and his brave friend, Young Eagle, as they grow to adulthood. Told in the simple, graceful style of the oral tradition, Medicine Bear brings to life a rich civilization and a noble people that are slowly and sadly being obscured by the modern world.
