Johnny's Phesant
Cheryl Minnema, University of Minnesota Press 2019
On their way home from the market, Johnny and his Gram find a wounded pheasant and bring it home to nurse it back to health. To their surprise the pheasant was only knocked out - and flies about the house, out the door, and into the air - leaving one lovely feather behind. A beautifully illustrated, simple story written by a member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe and illustrated by a Cree-Metis artist.
