Description

"A gripping adventure in which 13 young Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) seek to regain the honor of their band. A delightful work of historical fiction."-Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review As the Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) slowly migrated into the Lake Superior region centuries ago, they were met by a potent adversary-the Dakota (Sioux) who fiercely resisted their spread into its territory. Gradually the Anishinaabe pushed them out of the northern woodlands and into the plains to the south. This long-running and bloody conflict lies at the heart of the story of Ashi-niswi, The 13. Following a devastating raid on their camp, 13 Anishinaabe teenagers vow to restore the honor of their band by tracking down and savaging the Dakota raiders. The story is a parable posing the universal question: "What is the price of honor?" It is also a poignant coming-of-age story as the youngest of the youthful warriors struggles to come to grips with the aftermath of the quest.
