In clear, unadorned language, Carl Nordgren tells the story of Anung, an orphaned Ojibway boy who traverses the land to share with the greatest chief of the nations how all the men and women of his tribe cared for him when his parents died. This story gently proffers a message of cooperation and harmony with nature, community members, and all the world’s people. The surprising ending ties together Eastern and Western legends to reveal the unity of all people, despite cultural, physical, or geographical differences. Ages eight and up.
