Synopsis

Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Longfellow's poem 'The Song of Hiawatha' has long been a favourite classic. In this stunning picture book, Susan Jeffers has illuminated some the poem's most lyrical verses depicting Hiawatha's childhood. Rich in detail, here are the lapping waters and whispering pine trees, the dancing fireflies and swiftly running reindeer of Longfellow's hypnotic text. And here is the young Hiawatha, learning the names of the stars and the secrets of the animals, preparing to become a leader of his people.
