In reminiscing about his early years on Minnesota's White Earth
Reservation at the turn of the century, John Rogers reveals much
about the life and customs of the Chippewas. He tells of
food-gathering, fashioning bark canoes and wigwams, curing
deerskin, playing games, and participating in sacred rituals. These
customs were to be cast aside, however, when he was taken to a
white school in an effort to assimilate him into white society. In
the foreword to this new edition, Melissa L. Meyer places Roger's
memoirs within the story of the White Earth Reservation.
