The Hunter’s Promise

An Abenaki Tale

2015 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Picture Books, Early Reader (Children's)

The loyalty and thanks we owe our family and nature are embedded in this Native American cautionary tale about a hunter who makes a promise to remember his wife and children throughout the summer, even though he only sees them in winter and is offered the hand of the chief’s daughter in his village. Farnsworth’s illustrations gently depict the majesty of nature, with each paint stroke contributing to the texture of the tale. This fine fable brings a traditional indigenous story to a contemporary audience. Ages six and up.
