It was a bright, crisp fall morning in the small town of White Otter Lake. Rosette and her moushoum were walking down the old dirt road toward their favourite fishing spot. Rosette was 10 years old, but she was very small for her age; she had to hurry to keep up with her grandfather, who was tall and strong.

About the Author
Clarke, Tobias: - Tobias Clarke is an oral storyteller and has always enjoyed the lessons learned from traditional stories. She is a Drummond Island Metis descendant and is an active Metis community member in Ontario. Over the years she has developed a deep connection with her Metis culture, and has been recognized for her traditional knowledge and teachings. THE STORY OF THE TAMARACK is her first step towards taking her oral storytelling to the next level. The young Metis girl in the story is named after one of Tobias' Metis ancestors. She wrote her interpretation of this story back in 2011 and kept it in her dresser drawer until now. Jeffrey Wilson, a descendent of Metis heritage, began to draw at an early age on a Grey County, Ontario farm, dreaming of one day having his work in the newspaper funnies. After many years and scribbles later, the dream came to fruition when his comics, gags and editorial panels began to appear in publications across Canada. Jeff branched out to become a key animator in the 1986-87 "The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin" animated TV series, and amid a myriad of vocations, has spent almost two decades years as a newspaper graphic artist at Grey County's last community broadsheet, The Dundalk Herald. Jeffrey came to Tobias' attention when he illustrated daughter Rebekah Wilson's book, "The Tiny Voyageur" (Friesen Press). Today, he and wife Barb are rarely at their central Grey County home, absorbed in work, grandkids, or hobbies of improv comedy and community theatre.
