Shingebiss: An Ojibwe Legend

Shingebiss: An Ojibwe Legend Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shingebiss, a resourceful duck, presents a challenge to Winter Maker. He thinks he can not withstand the harsh winter ahead in this tale of the tiny hero overcoming a bigger foe. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Shingebiss, a little merganser duck, can always find plenty to eat. In all seasons, the Great Lake is full of fish. But one cold year the lake freezes over, and Shingebiss has to find a way to fish through the thick ice. To do that, he must face the fierce Winter Maker. Gracefully told and illustrated with vigorous woodcuts, this ancient Ojibwe story captures all the power of winter and all the courage of a small being who refuses to see winter as his enemy. This sacred story shows that those who follow the ways of Shingebiss will always have plenty to eat, no matter how hard the great wind of Winter Maker blows.

About the Author
