Book description
This story takes us on a journey into the author’s childhood memories as he describes the events that took place while growing up in the northern community of Oxford House, where the language spoken was Cree. The author describes the daily activities of a child as he enjoys the love of family and the beauty of the pristine lakes in the land of plenty. He grew up learning that acceptance, family, and community involvement was the cohesion that formed lasting friendships. He goes on to describe the many community activities that drew trappers and their families to the annual events held in the community. Not all was pleasant for this child as he meets with the many challenges of growing up and learning about people. His father was a fur trader who taught him about the fur trade and he learns the methods of trapping fur bearing animals from the neighbors. He describes the canoe journeys on the historical waterways his family traveled as his father hauled freight using canoes to resupply his trading post.
He describes the loneliness he experienced when separated from his family as he was sent away to go to school in a town where the language and culture was foreign.
