Magers & Quinn Booksellers says
The Sky Watched: Poems of Ojibwe Lives is a collection of poetry—some bilingual—that tells the collective story of a Minnesota Ojibwe family against the backdrop of history that begins with creation and continues to this day. Through poetry, Linda LeGarde Grover contributes to the continuation of Ojibwe worldview and survival in the recounting of history and family stories. In The Sky Watched, the voices of children, adults and elders, of Indian boarding school students and traditional tribal storytellers, and of the Manidoog, the unseen beings who surround our lives every day are given voice in a manifestation of the Ojibwe oral tradition teachings on the written page.

Linda LeGarde Grover is a professor of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth and a member of the Bois Forte Band of Ojibwe. She is author of The Dance Boots (Flannery O'Connor Award and Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize) and The Road Back to Sweetgrass (Wordcraft Circle 2015 Fiction Award) as well as articles, poetry, essays and short fiction.
