Concise Dictionary of Minnesota Ojibwe by John Nichols
Book DescriptionThe most up-to-date resource for those interested in the linguistic and cultural heritage of the Anishinaabe, "A Concise Dictionary of Minnesota Ojibwe" contains more than 7,000 of the most frequently used Ojibwe words. Presented in Ojibwe-English and English-Ojibwe sections, this dictionary spells words to reflect their actual pronunciation with a direct match between the letters used and the speech sounds of Ojibwe. It also contains many words and meanings added to the language in the last 140 years. Most entries give several inflected forms such as the plural, diminutive, and locative forms of nouns and first persons and participate forms of verbs. The basic patterns of Ojibwe word structure and the organization of the dictionary entries are clearly explained in the introduction. The most widely-used modern standard writing system for Ojibwe is used throughout, and some of the key objects of Ojibwe life are authentically illustrated by co-author and artist Earl Nyholm. Acknowledged as one of the three largest Native American langauges Ojibwe is spoken in many local varieties in the Upper Midwest and across Central and Eastern Canada. Minnesota Ojibwe is spoken in Central and Northern Minnesota and is very similar to the Ojibwe spoken in the Ontario-Minnesota border region, Wisconsin, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. "A Concise Dictionary of Minnesota Ojibwe" is a useful reference for all students of Ojibwe culture, history, language and literature.

Annual Big Arsenic Fishing Contest!, Hardback (July 2016)
On the surface this book spins a fisherman's tall tale about a ribald angling contest between three middle-aged friends who love (and perhaps hate) each other. Their escapades reveal a spirited paean to a beautiful river gorge, and also a poignant cautionary fable about male friendship and cutthroat competition.
