"The book is a startling 200-photo essay.... Featuring interviews and conversations with the Cree of Eeyou Istchee in English, French and Cree, the book is ideal to teach young Crees about their culture and inspire discussions about Cree ancestry between young and old."

The Nation, December 3, 2010

"From the very beginning, Eeyou Istchee takes readers on an adventure into the land of the Cree. With over 200 striking photographs, the book offers reader hours of pleasure and delight. Whether you read Eeyou Istchee from cover to cover or simply open it at random, both the black and white archival pictures and the colorful modern photographs offer a glimpse of the Cree way of life : the caribou hunt, fishing, winter walks, children's activities, flora and fauna, and portraits of the elders. Some of the landscapes, taken by award-winning photographers Abbott and Jensen, look like actual paintings. The trilingual text - written in English, French, and Cree - adds to the book's charm."
