Richard Wagamese was such an amazing storyteller and this non-fiction book is full of Ojibway stories to help share the Grandfather teachings and ceremonies. Unfortunately he passed away after the first 3 teachings leaving the reader so sorry for his death and wanting more of his wisdom and beautiful way with words.

His fiction and non-fiction are intwined as he learned and shared himself in all of his books as he learned and grew.

Still mulling over teachings contained in this book weeks after reading it. Especially the teaching on what is respect: not something to be demanded from others or earned, but something intrinsic that you carry around inside yourself that affects how you relate to everything and everyone around you. A beautiful book.

Everything Richard writes is incredible. He has a magical way of reaching everyone with his words and the images he evokes through his writing. I am so sad that he is gone but know that his teachings and beautiful presence will be felt for eternity.

The book is incomplete, wish it was better because I've heard amazing things about him. The pictures are also tacky.
