Description

Mildred Valley Thornton has an abiding passion which she pursued with almost missionary fervour throughout he life -- the preservation of Canada's native culture. For over fifty years she dedicated herself to that purpose through the medium of her paintings, writings and lectures. She painted the portraits of many prominent and historical Native Canadians and assembled an accompanying catalogue of anecdotes, folklore and legends which provide a unique chronicle of a vanished age. In her own words: "I saw so much to respect and admire in the Indian character and soon realised the enormous contribution they could make, culturally and spiritually to the Canada which is common heritage. As my work progressed my interest became overwhelming. I could see a page of glowing history disappearing before my eyes, I resolved to exert every effort and make every sacrifice to capture what I could before it was too late." The book includes 69 colour plates of her original paintings and her personal account of the vanishing age.
