by John L. Peyton;

Faces in the Firelight chronicles one year in the life of Northwoods Native Americans in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Enriched by the author's first hand knowledge, learned while traveling among the Ojibway early in the 20th century, this fictionalized account is a valuable ethnological record incorporating legends and traditional lifeways of the northern Ojibway Indians.

The plot centers 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 later, Old Moosh, 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.
