Emily Pauline Johnson, who was also known by the Mohawk name Tekahionwake, was a Canadian poet and author born in 1861. Her mother was English and her father was from the Mohawk tribe. Johnson became known for telling the stories of the Squamish people, told to her by a chief she became friends with. This is a collection of stories which were put together by her friends as a book, to help support her as she struggled with poverty. The stories are: The Two Sisters; The Siwash Rock; The Recluse; The Lost Salmon-run; The Deep Waters; The Sea-Serpent; The Lost Island; Point Grey; The Tulameen Trail; The Grey Archway; Deadman's Island; A Squamish Legend of Napoleon; The Lure in Stanley Park; Deer Lake; and, A Royal Mohawk Chief.
