The Lost IslandBook - 2004
In 1911, Pauline E. Johnson-Tekahionwake published Legends of Vancouver, a collection of native stories she learned from a tribal chieftain. One of these stories, The Lost Island, tells of a long-ago time when what is now Vancouver belonged to the Sqamish people. In poetic prose, Johnson retells the story of a native healer whose visit to a mysterious island ends in tragic loss. Acclaimed artist Atana's shimmering illustrations evoke a world long vanished.
