Walk in Peace: Legends and Stories of the Michigan Indians
Simon Otto was born and raised in Northern Michigan. His father was Ojibway and his mother Odawa. Both parents were very interested in preserving their culture. A flow of Indian people passed through their home. These visitors talked of politics and happenings in Indian country. Stories, the latest news, and legends were all intermingled. The author, as a young boy true to tradition, would sit and listen. He remembered these gatherings in later years and, with encouragement from his wife Mary, he put his memories on paper to share.
