186 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). (The author) "here recalls some of the tales that are told on the Six Nations Reserve on the Grand River in Ontario. Near the reserve is the town of Brantford, which is named after the Mohawk officer who led his people's fight for King George in the American War of Independence. These are stories that belong to twentieth-century farmers, shopkeepers, and high-steel workers who have never lost their communion with the natural world, which for them is also the world of the spirit. The stories' integration of traditional and present-day realities is beautifully realized in the remarkable pencil illustrations of Gary Miller, another native of the Six Nations Reserve." Contents: The Tree of Peace; Fairy Rings; Witches' Brew; Bountiful Earth; Potions and Charms; The Cycle of Life; The White Man Comes; Changing Rites; On the Grand River; Omens and Visions; New Festivals; Living Traditions. Christmas inscription on front free endpaper. Dust jacket is scuffed and worn at edges with some color loss, one or two very small closed tears and chips.
