Book summary

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's classic epic poem The Song of Hiawatha is revered for its environmental message and its moving plea for peace. It recalls life in close touch with the natural world, and it is, as well, an affecting love story. The Song of Hiawatha has never lost its freshness, revealing greater depths with the passing of time.
Margaret Early's expressive paintings illuminate the formative moments of Hiawatha's life with grace and beauty. At the same time, these stunning paintings transport the young reader into the world of Native American legend in which man and nature lived in a balance that, however idealized, sets a standard for the planet.
Exquisitely designed, gloriously illustrated, and presented in sensitively selected passages with bridging text that links Longfellow's words into a seamlessly satisfying story, this volume is one to be treasured. [via]
