Summary "Based in Duck Bay, Manitoba, in the 1940s, an Elder shares his experience of packing up to go out to collect blueberries, a traditional gathering that took place every summer. He describes the journey and landscape with humor and such vivid imagery that readers will see themselves there with him, boarding the trail of wagons from surrounding communities and heading east toward the blueberry patch. The Elder's stories offer a journey back in time and are complemented by images of fields of plump blueberries, tall green grass, bannock baking over an open fire, clear freshwater streams and the tents the people slept in" -- Publishers website
"In 2012, I embarked on a journey to learn Saulteaux- Anishinaabemowen and to revitalize the language for myself, our generation, our children and for generations to come. The artwork are the illustrations for our book titled "Mayabbekamneeboon" which translates to "Blueberry Patch". It was first told in Anishinabemowen and was later transcribed and translated into English. It is my Uncle Norman Chartrand's childhood memory of the community packing up their horses and heading East of Duck Bay to pick blueberries for the month of July." Jennifer Leason.
