Collection of poems from 1912 by Emily Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake) (1861-1913), who was a Canadian writer and performer. She is often remembered for her poems that celebrate her aboriginal heritage. One such poem is the frequently anthologised The Song my Paddle Sings (inluded in this book). Her first volume of poetry, The White Wampum, was published in London in 1895, and followed by Canadian Born in 1903. The contents of these volumes, along with some additional poems, were published as Flint and Feather in 1912. This volume has been reprinted many times, becoming one of the best-selling titles of Canadian poetry.
