The Song Within My Heart (Hardcover)

Renowned Cree painter Allen Sapp's inspired and stunning artwork beautifully complements this sweet story of a young First Nations boy preparing for his first pow wow. The young boy's Nokum-his beloved grandmother-guides him through the exciting day and watches over him as events unfold. David Bouchard's rhythmic and informative text is based on remembrances from Allen Sapp's childhood.

Allen Sapp is a Cree painter who grew up on the Red Pheasant Reserve in the 1930s and now lives and works in nearby North Battleford, Saskatchewan. He is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and has held exhibitions across Canada, the U.S. and Europe. He has won many awards and is an Officer of the Order of Canada.
