It looks as if I might be just about the only man who has read and reviewed this work on AMAZON, which is a pity because men can learn a great deal from reading these native American stories, which reveal that the native peoples, and especially the native women, of Vancouver off the coast of British Columbia were both more culture and civilised than the Europeans who invaded their land and all but destroyed their culture. Not only this, their spiritual beliefs were also superior to those of the European invaders.

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.

This is a stunningly beautiful, shocking book about the legends of the Nootka women of Vancouver Island, Canada. I count it among my favourite books, and regard it as a beautiful oddity.

Whilst feeling slightly marginalised at times as a male reader, the spirit running through the book made up for that many times over. A rich blend of folklore, social history, storytelling and wonderful humanity; small but perfectly formed :-)!

My friend lent me this little book as the time was right...it is a curious read to start with and it pulls you and connects you to something deep inside. I had to get a copy to keep as you know that you will go back and you will lend it to others. I found that I would read a little and then let it sink in for a few days maybe it was sometimes the bravery, the deep sense of hurt or the shock of these tales handed down by these remarkable women. There is also a sense of humour that runs through these chapters that help ground the whole book. It felt like I had found another piece of the missing puzzle in my life, my mother's, my daughter's,my sister's, my aunties my women folk....we are all related :)

I adore this book and have given a copy to lots of my friends. Have reread it over and over in the last two dewcades and never get bored with it. The stories really capture what we are missing in our lives and culture so they are inspiring. And they get better and better as the book goes on. Highly recommend.
