Serpents and Other Spiritual Beings is a collection of traditional Ojibwe/Anishinaabe stories transcribed directly from Murdoch’s oral storytelling, preserving the style and rhythm of the storyteller’s voice. These are stories of tradition, history, morality and object lessons, involving powerful spirit-beings in Serpent form. All of the stories appear in both English and Anishinaabemowin, with translations by Patricia BigGeorge. Murdoch’s traditional-style Ojibwe artwork provides beautiful illustrations throughout. Serpents and Other Spiritual Beings is the second book in the Ojibwe History Series by renowned Ojibwe storyteller Bomgiizhik Isaac Murdoch. Volume 1,The Trail of Nenaboozhoo and Other Creation Stories (2019), has been one of our best selling titles.
