Shingebiss, the little merganser duck, could always find plenty to eat. In all seasons, the Great Lake was full of fish for him to catch. But one bitter cold year, the lake freezes over as solid as stone, and Shingebiss must find a way to fish through the ice. And to do that, he must face the fierce Winter Maker. Gracefully told and illustrated with vigorous full-color woodcuts, this ancient Ojibwe story captures all the power of winter on the coldest of northern nights and all the courage of a small being who refuses to see winter as his enemy. Passed down for generations by a people who perceive nature as a teacher, this story shows that those who follow the ways of Shingebiss will always have plenty to eat, no matter how hard the great wind of Winter Maker blows.
