|About the Book|
Told through the spirit of the loon with a hint of lesbian fairytale, THE BUCKSKIN SKIRT OAR TRAVELER is set in the forest of Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. The Hamlet of Winonah is on one side of the forest, a primitive feminist tribe geared to start a new culture through their children, Winonah meaning first-born daughter. The Province of Blige will be the other side, going into the Celtic fringe of postcard mythical Ireland. Perhaps the Province of Blige will be the shop window for the lesbian community with fragrance chemists, designer-slip crafters and sprite-wing builders flying the purple flag on the Maypole. The Buckskin Skirt Oar Traveler taps maple trees to make maple syrup. Its the annual maple sugaring season.
