Call of the Fiddle

Many years ago,by a lake in Northern Canada, there was a young girl named Marie. She spoke French and she spoke Cree, but it was her wordless understanding with a special goose that would change her life. The geese carry the spirits of the departed to the promised land. With her special friendship Marie would soon be known as Niskaw for bringing the teachings and the healings of the geese to her people. Goose Girl is a gentle and moving story of love, faith and letting go.
