Alma Greene (Gah-wonh-nos-doh), (First published by Hamlyn Publishers in 1972), 1997.

Alma Greene, descended from a long line of Mohawk chieftains and the daughter of a Clan Mother, was recognized from early childhood as a natural healer. She grew up on a farm just outside the edge of the Grand River Lands in Ontario and wrote about her people's past and the contemporary events she witnessed, including the remedies practiced for generations by her forebears; the ceremonies that perpetuate the line of clan leader; the gods whom the Mohawks honour; the variety of their beliefs. She also expressed the Native people's disillusionment with Christianity, the imposition of the white man's world and the land claim deceptions. Dramatic illustrations.

Working Light:
The Wandering Life of Photographer Edith S. Watson
Frances Rooney.

Edith Watson travelled across Canada from the 1890s, documenting the lives of rural people, frequently women, at work. She photographed women working the fish flakes in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia; making soap, weaving and spinning in Quebec and across the Prairies and into British Columbia. She spent three summers among the Doukhobors in Alberta and BC. The photographs are both valuable as social history and beautifully composed.
