Stone introduces Edwin, a young man who must discover his family’s past if he is to have any future. Edwin learns of his ancestor Stone, a young Plains Cree man, who came of age in the early 19th century. Following a vision quest, Stone aspires to be like his older brother, Bear, a member of the Warrior Society. But when Bear is tragically killed during a Blackfoot raid, Stone, the best shot and rider in his encampment, must overcome his grief and avenge his brother’s death. Only then can he begin a new life with his bride, Nahoway. It is Stone’s story that drives Edwin to embark on his own quest.

    The graphic novel Stone offers a powerful message through image and word, and will engage readers in an historical and insightful story that illuminates the conflict that challenged Canada’s very core, and continues to concern us as a Nation today.

  2. Rebecca Chartrand

    I haven’t read the books, but had a chance to read the teacher’s guide. The guide is very easy to follow and will be particularly useful for teachers who may not have a good understanding of Aboriginal peoples history and perspectives.
    Explanation of terminology is great. It makes distinctions between diversity between and within nations, which I think is essential. We need to continue to dig deeper when we look at what Aboriginal education and perspectives means. This resource is a good example of exploring the breadth and depth of such a concept.

    Look forward to reviewing the books with my nephews.
