What the Abenaki Say About Dogs

Dan Close

Commemorating the 400th Anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s arrival on The Waters that Lie Between - Lake Champlain - Dan Close writes a collection of poetic narratives about the land alongside the lake—land now known mostly as Vermont. In tales seen through his eyes, Close imagines how it might have been before de Champlain "found" the lake and brought Europeans to its shore. The poet tells many tales of old and more modern times beside the water, closing out his collection with a whimsical and heartfelt short story about The Bold McGregor, a man of deep thoughts and many mysteries …Several members of the Vermont Abenaki tribe have embraced the book and sold it in their shops.
