Pretty pictures, a rather dull and repetitious "poem", a good but rather trite message to respect the land, the oceans, and life. Not bad but nothing to catch the eye. ( )

The Elders Are Watching by Dave Bouchard and Roy Henry Vickers. This is a deceptively beautiful book. Vickers' art work is absolutely stunning, true to his Native roots and just mesmerizing. His use of both bright colours, as well as muted colours and superimposed imagery is brilliant. Bouchard's verse is also lovely. The themes of this book include culture, heritage, environment and, hopeful reconciliation. Although it was published in 1990, it feels incredibly timely today. I had planned on passing this book along but I think I want to hang onto it a bit longer, to look through it again.

Both artist and author live in British Columbia ( )
