Pritchard, a descendant of the Micmac people as well as a scholar, tells how he set out to learn more about his own native traditions through Algonquin speech - an intricate and beautiful metaphoric language that, like so many native languages around the globe - is fast disappearing. The Algonquin - once a vast nation, and still a potent spiritual force - "don't write in metaphor, they speak it; they don't recite poetry, they live it." Where there is "no word for time," life moves with the rhythms of nature, and the dominant culture's "time equals money, money equals good" equation is superceded by a philosophy that prizes the beauty of spoken language, community, and respect for the earth."--Jacket." ;
