Inspired by an American First Nation folk-tale, a magical story, stunningly illustrated.
When beautiful Proud Girl refuses to marry Bravest Warrior, he is very angry and creates Ice Man, who leads Proud Girl into great danger. But Wild Wolf, guardian spirit of the nation, is watching. Pride and anger can be turned into forgiveness and love.
Fiona French's superb illustrations to her story reflect her deep appreciation of Algonquin beadwork, quillwork, and embroidery, richly coloured and textured.
