Carl Nordgren, Anung's Journey

When an orphan sets out on his vision quest in Anung’s Journey, he sees clearly that his purpose in life is to find the greatest chief of all and tell him of the many acts of kindness the mothers and fathers of the village have given to him.  In his quest to find the greatest chief, Anung travels through the 13 tribes of the First Nations, across forests, plains, water, and desert. Along the way, he is accompanied by Turtle, the interpreter of all languages. He finds friends in the most unlikely of places––a squirrel’s nest, a mother bear’s den, and a city filled with people from every tribe. At each stop, Anung and his drum sing of his mothers and fathers and his quest to meet the greatest chief.  This ancient legend, told in the beautifully poetic style of Carl Nordgren, begs to be read aloud and savored.  The book for young readers and families also features 10 beautiful paper cut illustrations by artist Brita Wolf.
