These stirring tales described the life-history of Glooscap. Endowed with supreme power, Glooscap, the benevolent warrior against evil, was credited with the creation of many wild creatures and the change in form of others. Even the land was influenced by his handiwork and several notable landmarks along the Fundy coast are linked to his story.
In Glooscap Legends, both famous and little-known legends are told of this First Nations' god who made his home on the mountaintop of Cape Blomidon. "The grandest and most sophisticated character," wrote Charles Leland of Glooscap's importance in aboriginal literature. He was a giant, a magician, and a friend to the oppressed. This edition is illustrated by native artist Teresa MacPhee and includes a map of Glooscap landmarks.
