Abstract: In this book, an orphaned Ojibway (or Anishinaabe) Indian boy begins a journey to locate the greatest chief of all other Indian nations. Along the way, the boy is befriended by a turtle and female bear who help interpret languages and protect Anung from dangers lurking in the forest. Essentially, the book helps readers understand the importance of family and friends in Ojibway Indian culture as well as the preservation of traditions and the blessings of daily life. Ultimately, Anung’s Journey helps readers gain a better understanding of how legends can become an integral part of Native American tradition or culture.
