Grace Rajnovich - More than 400 rock paintings adorn the Canadian Shield from Quebec, across Ontario as far west as Saskatchewan. The pictographs are the legacy of Algonquin-speaking Cree and Ojibway, whose roots may extend to the beginnings of human occupancy in the region almost 10,000 years ago. The author uncovers a multitude of clues as to the meanings of the paintings. Skillfully weaving the imagery, metaphors and traditions of the Cree and Ojibwat, Grace Rajnovich has recaptured the poetry and wisdom of an ancient culture. (17 X 25cm)
