Journey to the southernmost tip of the territories held by Canada. North of Middle Island opens with a collection of individual poems thatcapture the spirit of the relatively isolated, sparsely populated community ofPelee Island. The pieces explore contemporary Indigenous experience in thenatural and built environments of the island and surrounding waters.
The book concludes with an epic, "rarely true" narrative of modern-day warriors, told in traditional Anglo-Saxon style--a new Lenape myth of how Deerwoman (Ahtuhxkwe) comes to Pelee Island. The events of this epic tale are loosely based on the infamous professional wrestler and actor Rowdy Roddy Piper's time on the island and Wrestlemania XII, Piper's notorious "Backlot Brawl" with fellow wrestler Goldust (Nkuli Punkw).
Follow acclaimed Moravian of the Thames First Nation poet D.A. Lockhart on this lyrical, epic journey into the unique culture and landscapes that lie just North of Middle Island.
