Powers of the Air lived to witness the desecration of Grand Island by the fur and logging industries, the Christianization of the tribe, and the near total loss of the Chippewa language, history, and culture. Graham charts the plight of the Chippewa as white culture steadily encroaches, forcing the native people off the island and dispersing their community on the mainland. The story ends with happier events of the past two decades, including the protection of Grand Island within the National Forest system, and the resurgence of Chippewa culture.

My neighbor lent me this book, which I originally bought because I loved this book so much. The story was very touching! If you're Native American or not this story really makes one think about the original people from America. I will always remember this story, and I actually have heard that they are going to be making a movie of this soon... YIPPY!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
