Still This Love Goes On
Buffy Sainte-Marie, illustrated by Julie Flett
Publisher: Greystone Kids
A love letter to Indigenous communities everywhere, this picture book gorgeously illustrated by Julie Flett celebrates seasons, nature, and community.
Based on Academy Award-winning Cree icon Buffy Sainte-Marie’s song of the same name, Still This Love Goes On is a stunning celebration of Indigenous experience. Breathtaking illustrations from celebrated Cree–Métis artist Julie Flett combine with Sainte-Marie’s vivid lyrics to craft a remarkable piece of art.
Destined to be read and sung for generations, this gem of a picture book is accompanied by:
- Sheet music so that readers can play along
- A note from Sainte-Marie about her much-admired song
Sat beside a beaver dam and watched the winter grow
Ice was hard with little tracks appearing in the snow
Fog is in the valley now and all the geese are gone
Cross the moon I saw them go and
Still this love goes on and on
Still this love goes on.
