Meet Benjamin, his Ojibwe name is Lone Eagle. This book is a story about his life, growing up in the North Woods wilderness back in the days when the nations were known by names like Anishinabe, Iyiniwok, and Menominee. As a boy, he faces tragedy and becomes a lost son growing into adulthood. In spite of the tragedy in his life, he is able to find balance and a deep understanding and appreciation for God's creation and the Great Mystery. If you like reading about Native American history, the beauty of the natural environment, the suspense surrounding a life story, or the joy that is found in a new relationship, this book is for you. If you have ever dipped a paddle into a crystal clear northern lake and walked among the pine and birch forests, you will like this book. In summary, the book captures a piece of our little known history, a book about perseverance in the face of uncontrollable situations in our lives, and most importantly, a book about understanding our place in God's creation and the importance of the life force within us.
