Description

Stories of the Road Allowance People is an important contribution to Métis history and oral tradition from the acclaimed Métis writer Maria Campbell.  In this unique collection, Maria Campbell has translated eight stories from her elders and presents them in their true oral form.  The humour and warmth of these stories are clearly heard in the dialect and rhythm of the storytellers of a past generation.  Her respect for the elders and their Michif language is apparent in this important book that contributes to the study and teaching of Native literature in Canada.  Reissued in 2010 by Gabriel Dumont Institute with the remarkable and stunning colour illustrations by Sherry Farrell Racette. Contains an audio CD with narration. Suitable for senior high school and university literature courses.
