Summary

Rachel's Children is the true story of a contemporary Ojibwa household and the woman and her children who are at its core. As their lives unfold, we understand how traditional beliefs help Rachel's family cope as they encounter racism in rural Michigan. Beardslee writes in a style that is a combination of ethnography, theatrical script, and novel, echoing the Ojibwa style of storytelling. Her book will be valuable for instructors in Native studies, multicultural education, and anthropology. Visit our website for sample chapters!
