Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4;

Now that his Mishoomis, his grandfather, is gone, a young man remembers walking with him in the bush and listening to stories of the old days; he remembers being honored with an eagle feather at the powwow and not knowing what he had done to deserve this honor; he remembers his grandfather telling him that I had achieved a good deed from the first day he held me, as a baby, in his arms.

Through his grandfather's gentle teachings a young Ojibwe boy learns the values of life and the significance of the eagle feather.

Plains illustrations perfectly complement this deep little story and express the many layers of life's experiences.
