Synopses & Reviews
Beautiful artwork helps illuminate the daily lives of the Anishinabe, also known as the Chippewa or Ojibwa. Living in the Western Great Lakes region, they adapted to each season by changing camp locations. Fascinating text describes clan life, different camps for different seasons, how wigwams and other dwellings were built, hunting, clothing, celebrations, and the roles of men and women.
