We owe a great debt of gratitude to Anne Cameron for retelling these stories with vivid readability and making them available to a much wider readership. All told, there are 19 tales in the work plus a short explanatory preface. There is, of course, great sadness in the fact that the early settlers failed to recognise anything much that was worth learning from the native peoples or, if they did learn anything, deliberately failed to acknowledge it. There's one telling story in the book that describes how some very smelly European trapper chappies arrive on the scene and how they are a complete contrast to the native peoples concerning their personal hygiene.
Nasty, male dominated, aggressive religious movements are causing untold suffering in several parts of the world as I write this. They would all do well if they were to throw down their weapons and listen to the wisdom from the Daughters of Copper Woman. .Men cannot be trusted with religion. Copper Woman and her descendants have a philosophy of life far superior to anything taught by male managed religious palaver. Copper Woman and her daughters know all about how to nurture security in a very insecure world. It's so encouraging that these teachings and ways of life are now preserved for generations in this interesting and very helpful book.
