Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Our parents always taught us well. They told us to look on the good side of life and to accept what has to happen. The Man Who Lived with a Giant presents traditional and personal stories told by Johnny Neyelle, a respected Dene storyteller and Elder from Déline, Northwest Territories. Johnny Neyelle used storytelling to teach Dene youth and others to understand and celebrate Dene traditions and identities. Johnny's entertaining voice makes his stories accessible to readers young and old, and his wisdom reinforces the right way to live: in harmony with people and places. Storytelling forms the core of Dene knowledge-keeping. A volume dedicated to making Dene culture strong, The Man Who Lived with a Giant is a vital book for Dene readers, researchers working with Indigenous cultures and oral histories, and scholars preserving Elders' stories. Even more, it is a book for the Dene people of today and tomorrow.
From The Publisher*A vital book of cultural storytelling for Dene readers and anyone invested in Indigenous knowledge-keeping.
