In the spring all had recovered and the girl and her brother went out to the forest to locate the girl's lost moccasins. In the spot where she lost the moccasins and along her trail grew wondrous and beautiful flowers. The dainty flowers were pink and white and looked exactly like the moccasins the girl had worn. This flower was called the moccasin flower by the Ojibwe people. Today it is known as the Lady Slipper. These delicate spring flowers remind us the courage and strength of a young Ojibwe girl who brought healing to her village. The story is illustrated in stylized and brightly coloured images.
Some of the designs reflect Woodland floral beadwork although distinctive tribal clothing and setting are less clear. This is an excellent retelling of a traditional legend where the author has identified the original sources and also incorporates Ojibwe terms throughout the story.

Never pick a lady slipper. If any part is picked, the entire flower dies. And it grows there, in the northern woods, to mark the courage and strength of a small girl who lived long ago--a girl who saved all of her people from a terrible disease by listening carefully to the whispering snow, the rumbling ice, and the dancing northern lights.
The Ojibwa tell a story of the moccasin flower, called lady slipper in English, a beautiful woodland blossom.
