The Grizzly Mother is a unique non-fiction picture book about bears, seasons, Gitxsan Nation and their Northwest Coast environment. Author Hetxw’msGyetxw (Brett D Huson) from the Gitxsan Nation and Metis illustrator Natasha Donovan combine their skills in the creation of an informative, lyrical, and engaging read about a mother grizzly and her little bears awakening in their high mountain den, the melting snow and the scent of spring. As they look for berries sharing the land with the people along Xsan, the seasons unfold and so does their food as they seek out salmon eventually returning to the den. Bringing seasons and traditional knowledge into a readable account makes this book part story and factual account ideal for understanding Indigenous worldview and why Gitxsan acknowledge their role in the cycle of life. This book contains information about the Gitxsan, definitions of some words and illustrations of the story and the seasons. A must-have title for school and public libraries.
