Tom is member of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe and lives nearby in Little Sand Bay near Red Cliff. His stories come from the wisdom of his ninety-five year old grandmother (Nookomis in the Anishinaabe language) as well as other teachers in his life. He captures the circular simplicity and complexity of native life and the difficulties of incorporating and living that life in the modern world. Tom’s previous books include Ojibwe Waasa Inaabida, The Good Path, and The Four Hills of Life.
