To produce this book, Cheryl Samuel travelled to Leningrad, Copenhagen, and London to examine the six robes in Europe. She also studied the robes housed in museums in Canada and the United States. In 1985, she reconstructed Chief Kotlean's robe, using information she had gathered from her study of the actual robes and Tikhanov's paintings. In the process, she resurrected an old weaving style no longer used by the Native people on the northern coast. Through her extensive and careful research, Cheryl Samuel makes an important contribution to the knowledge of early Indian weaving.

The fields at Raven Fen yield barely enough for Agne and his family to live on, and his young son Klas can only watch as despair consumes his father. While Klas dreams of migrating birds - of escape - Agne imagines his crops devoured by insects never seen in Sweden, predicts endless cycles of storm and drought, hears only the ceaseless crowing of the ravens - and obsesses over the day when his son will take on his burden of toil. But it is Sweden, it is the 1970s, and Klas can't accept the life his father has chosen for him. Caught between loyalty to his father and fear of his apparent destiny, Klas takes solace in nature, with the cuckoos, curlews and lapwings, far from the tormented world of Raven Fen. And as his father, like his father before him, falls deeper into madness, Klas begins to wonder if he himself might be insane.

Quetico Park in northwestern Ontario celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2009. Long-recognized as a gem among parks, Quetico contains some of the largest stands of old-growth red and white pine in Canada , as well as a diversity of fascinating lichens, carnivorous plants in specialized habitats. The author presents an insightful look into Quetico’s natural history as he examines the adapations that have allowed moose, white-tailed deer, wolves and other mammals to survive. The human history of the park is also explored, beginning with the Objiwa living there when the area was designated as a park, followed by accounts of trappers, loggers, miners, park rangers, and poachers. Beginning with the retreat of the glaciers, the author combines his thorough research into Quetico’s long and varied history with the threads of his own extensive involvement with the park. The result is a splendid tribute to a very special place.

This tale of surviving an Arctic winter, true to the ecology and mythology of the North, is told by the creatures who live there. The story opens when Gon, the old raven and the main storyteller, happens upon a potential meal: a young fox caught in a leg-hold trap. But the fox chews off his own front paw, escapes, and ends up forming an unlikely friendship with a wolf Who has been wounded by a ferocious flying beast with huge black feet (an aircraft). Together they set off to find the Great Trudger (the polar bear), and during their joyous and terrible adventure they meet other denizens of the Arctic - birds, hares, walruses, caribou, musk oxen - all of whom tell their own stories in their own words as winter unfolds in the frozen North. The old raven, who will ultimately know every one of them, watches over them as touchstone, storyteller, mythmaker. "The Raven's Tale" is based on C. W. Nicol's extensive work in the Arctic and his lifetime dedication to wildlife conservation. In addition to being a bestseller in Japan, the book was translated into Inuktitut for 1993 publication.
