Description

My aim, my joy, my pride, is to sing the glories of my own people.
—?E. Pauline Johnson

A search for the timeless connection to the old world presages a vision of the future in the haunting story of The Lost Island from Legends of Vancouver, a book inspired by the friendship between a Mohawk poet and a Salish chief and storyteller. It was the first collection of West Coast legends retold in English by a native artist and has become a classic of Canadian children’s and native literature. Set amidst the natural beauty of Vancouver, British Columbia, the detailed watercolour illustrations by Atanas convey a spirit infused with the love of nature.
