Linda LeGarde Grover was our guest this morning. The snow is here and it is time to tell stories.

In her new book "Gichigami Hearts - Stories and Histories from Misaabekong" she writes of place and people and how the stories of both intertwine. Linda talked about movement and people and land in our conversation.

From the University of MN Press:

Long before there was a Duluth, Minnesota the massive outcropping that divides the city emerged from the ridge of gabbro rock running along the westward shore of Lake Superior. A great westward migration carried the Ojibwe people to this place, the Place of Rocks.

Blending the seen and unseen, the old and the new, the amusing and the tragic and the hauntingly familiar - this lyrical work encapsulates a way of life forever vibrant at the Point of Rocks.
