The Lost Island
"My aim, my joy, my pride, is to sing the glories of my own people."
The story of The Lost Island is from the Legends of Vancouver, a book inspired by the friendship between a Mohawk poet and a Salish storyteller. Originally published to great success in 1911, it was the first collection of native legends retold in English by a native artist and has become a classic.
