PRODUCT: Voices from the Ice


ISBN 978-0-939923-15-1; 7" x 10"
by John L. Peyton

The late John Peyton used his marvelous skills as storyteller and artist to give children a glimpse of Ojibway life in the northwoods during the early 20th century. In this fully illustrated story, a young boy and his family leave the hunger and isolation of their winter camp and make their way across the still snow-covered land and frozen streams, hoping to join the rest of their people at the sugarbush. Theirs is a race against the thawing ice, beneath which lie spirits, some of which are waiting to cut off the family from the bounty of spring, while others seek to ensure their safe journey. Vividly portrayed are not only the hardships endured by these Native Americans, but also their continual courage, perseverance, and joyousness.
