Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nine-year-old Sheyenne lives in Sambaa K'e, Northwest Territories-that's Trout Lake in English. Come learn with her as she takes you on a journey to her community in the fall, the season of moose.

 

This is the fourth book in the popular series "The Land Is Our Storybook" and features the Dehcho region of the Dene. "The Land Is Our Storybook" is a series of books about the lands and cultures of Canada's Northwest Territories. In the books, storytellers, elders, and cultural leaders from the ten regions in the Territories share real stories of everyday life in the North today.

 

About the Author

 

Mindy Willett lives in Yellowknife, the capital of the Northwest Territories. She is a teacher at heart although no longer in the classroom. She first came north to Rankin Inlet, Nunavut in 1987 and most recently taught in Kugluktuk, Nunavut from 1996 to 2000. Mindy stopped being a classroom teacher when she had her son Jack. To remain home as much as possible, she started her own home-based business, writing educational materials.
 
Tessa Macintosh first came north to Cape Dorset in 1974. A few years later, she headed to Yellowknife to work as a photographer for the Native Press and then the NT government. She is now a freelance photographer living in Yellowknife. Her favourite experiences are with people out on the land.
 
Sheyenne Jumbo is a nine-year-old storyteller from Sambaa K’e, Northwest Territories. She loves to go sliding, skating, Ski-doing, and camping with her friends and family. She also likes playing guitar, reading, writing in her journal, and telling stories. Sheyenne won the Canada Writes to Read contest with her story of how her town, Sambaa K’e, was made by the giant.
