A Northern Land: Life with the Ojibwe
When Howward Paap married an Ojibwe woman over 40 years ago, he gained entry to a Native American world seldom entered by Caucasians. In "A Northern Land" Paap writes about various aspects of Objibwe culture from fishing to progressive dinnners and shares his insights about the people he has met. Most important of all, he offers a differnt view of life than most of us have.
