"A love letter to family, home, and Indigenous traditions. . . This story reminds readers of the joy we experience upon returning to those whom we love and who love us."—Kirkus

At the heart of this picture book is a gentle message about missing our loved ones, and the promise of seeing each other again.

This gem of a picture book features:

  • Sheet music of Buffy Sainte-Marie's beloved song
  • Notes from Sainte-Marie and Flett about their inspiration for the song and illustrations

Brimming with love for community and the land, Still This Love Goes On is destined to be read and sung for generations.
