This book is no more than what the author states in her introduction: a romanticized version of the life of an Ojibway woman who stepped a foot into the white world and thus had some influence on Native/European relationships during the late 1700'2-early 1800's. Sotebier didn't quite bring her to life; lacking insight into Native culture, thoughts, and emotions. Indeed, more than enough mention was made of Longfellow's poem "The Song of Hiawatha" inspired by Ozhauguscodaywayquay's son-in-law's collection of Ojibwe stories he heard from her & other family members. But, as a very short book, it was worth reading for this unknown aspect of history.
Includes glossary of Ojibwe words, bibliography, and index.
I was very bothered by the translation of Ozhauguscodaywayquay's name, as "Green Glade" is not a description that I have any connection with--it seems very much an Anglo-European landscape setting. ( )

Dedication
For my father, Arthur August Mattson, who had a deep respect for, and an abiding love of, the Anishinabe of the North.
First words
The spring-green buds were plump on the birch and popple branches but had not yet broken out into their early lacy patterns when Ozhaguscodaywayquay, Woman of the Green Glade, left her father's winter lodge to fast.
Introduction: In 1790, John Johnston, having just lost his position as manager of the Belfast water works, left his family home in County Antrim, Ireeland, to seek his fortune in North America.
