Cree - Runs 40-60 miles a day...

"My driver was a heathen Cree. He was, moreover, a linguist, speaking several aboriginal dialects and a kind of mongrel French. Five golden sovereigns constituted the bond of union between us. He was a lank, muscular man, the bones of whose huge frame stood out conspicuous at the joints and angles, and the muscles showed distinctly in his gaunt meagreness.

Quotes - The loaf is gone...

"They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they never kept but one: they promised to take our land and they took it.

Quotes - The earth is a very loudly announced being...

"The earth is a very, very loudly announced being. How can you say all of our sources and resources come from something that isn't living? It is a living being-Mother Earth.
