Ojibwa artist and author Ferguson Plain weaves another delightful story focussing on traditional Aboriginal values. Nokomis and I is an insightful story of a young boy's journey through nature with his grandmother Nokomis. As the boy and Nokomis walk, they discover a spider, Sespike, along their path. Nokomis stops to share the lesson of the spider's web, explaining how the Circle of Life is made up of humans, animals, plants, and stones delicately woven together. Each relies on their relationships to keep life in balance.
