Makoons

Makoons (Birchbark House)

Book 5 in the beloved Birchbark House series. Named for the Ojibwe word for little bear, Makoons and his twin, Chickadee, have traveled with their family to the Great Plains of Dakota Territory.

But Makoons has had a vision that foretells great challenges—challenges that his family may not be able to overcome. Signed by Louise.

Birchbark Books is pleased to host an evening with poet, novelist, and essayist Deena Metgzer. Deena will be reading from and discussing her new novel A Rain of Night Birds, which has been called "a momentous and needed confrontation between indigenous knowledge and the modern scientific mind." Deena Metzger is a radical thinker on behalf of the natural world and planetary survival, a teacher of writing and healing practices for 50 years, and a writer and activist profoundly concerned with peacemaking, restoration and sanctuary for a beleaguered world. Her work examines the tragic failure of contemporary culture and provides guidance for personal, political, environmental and spiritual healing. Reception and book signing to follow the reading.
