Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan"Long ago, when dreams were more real than they are today;" a young, adventurous, Mi'kmaq (Micmac) boy named Wood Duck "dreamed of the sea and what lay far out on its waters." He builds a canoe and, with ten other intrepid villagers, manages to cross the Atlantic, reaching Ireland, a place of odd wigwams, tall, strange people, and flocks of fluffy white animals. Dramatic watercolors compliment this haunting bilingual tale, written in both English and Mi'kmaq.
