As a product of an oral tradition that was still flourishing during her childhood in the village of Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island in Georgian Bay, Daphne became a superb storyteller, in the tradition of her elders. It is this inheritance that she has built on as she told her stories to her two collaborators. Odjig's skills as a storyteller are reflected in the impressionistic introductions to many of the chapters. Her lively expresion of events and activities in her life come vividly alive for Vanderburgh who has maintained as much as possible the authenticity of Odjig's narratives and tried to pass these impressions along to the reader. Odjig's skill in visual communication is evident in the paintings reproduced here. Southcott has tried to pass on to the reader the thoughts and emotions the artist experienced in the creation of these paintings." Tiny repaired tear at bottom of front inside hinge, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small bump to bottom corner of each board. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing, small tear on front panel near hinge - archivally taped, tiny dent on front hinge, tiny sticker removal mark on front panel.
