Aggie & Mudgy: The Journey of Two Kaska Dena Children
Heritage House Publishing
Themes of family, love and courage weave through the tale of Aggie and Mudgy. Using traditional storytelling in her gentle, loving way, Nan teaches her granddaughter Maddy the truth about their past with the heartbreaking story of two sisters from long ago. Over several days, Nan recounts the journey of the young girls, who were forced to travel 1600 kilometres to residential school where they remained far from their family for over ten years. Author Wendy Proverbs has created a triumph of a book that honours her family’s history, all the while weaving a magical tale with memorable characters.
