Lorraine is a Metis girl who lives is Alberta. When she discovers her brother and cousins are building a tree house for boys only she tells her grandmother who offers wise advise to her and her sister about girls and boys.The storyteller and memory keeper is Verna Courtrille, a Métis woman with a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Alberta. From her descriptions stories were built so she could share her experiences when she lived with her grandmother in central Alberta. When Verna was very young her grandfather became ill. When her parents separated Verna’s grandmother played a crucial role in Verna’s upbringing. While the content of the story is based on real life memories, the characters, context and images are fictional representations. The important values Verna wishes to pass on to the next generation are: observing the natural environment; maintaining good relations with family and nature; working together to get a job done; listening to elders and remembering to be grateful when nature provides nourishment.
