To that end a story of local origin was provided in both an English and an Ojibwe text and woodcut illustrations characteristic of the area. While it continues to serve its original purpose, the book has also achieved recognition as a significant example of Ojibwe Art." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks.
