Gluskonba and the Maple Trees


Gluskonba and the Maple Trees: Kloskoba ta Senomozia

By Joseph, James, and Jesse Bruchac.  Hardcover. 34 pgs.

Long ago, people could get maple syrup out of the branches of maple trees.  They began to neglect their lodges and fields in favor of enjoying the sweet treat.  This Abenaki story describes how Gluskonba made the sap from the maple trees light and watery so people had to boil it to get the sweet syrup.

This book includes the text in Abenaki at the end of the illustrated story.

Illustrated with full color water color paintings by Amy Hook-Therrien.
