Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The story of a determined Ojibwe Grandmother (Nokomis) Josephine Mandamin and her great love for Nibi (water). Nokomis walks to raise awareness of our need to protect Nibi for future generations, and for all life on the planet. She, along with other women, men, and youth, have walked around all the Great Lakes from the four salt waters, or oceans, to Lake Superior. The walks are full of challenges, and by her example Josephine invites us all to take up our responsibility to protect our water, the giver of life, and to protect our planet for all generations.

Review Quote*An important topic is treated with grace, love, and a smidgen of humor in this delightful, necessary book.
Review Quote*... a worthwhile addition to classroom and public libraries and a resource for discussions about First Nations and ecology.
Review Quote*... like so many titles about Indigenous topics finally earning shelf space in Canadian libraries and bookshops, "The Water Walker" has just as much to teach parents as the children... Joanne Robertson succeeds in answering with her words and her art the same question that Nokomis Josephine answered with her footsteps: "What are you going to do about it?"
