Lies To Live By brings together two selections of stories by Ojibwe storyteller Lois Beardslee. “Lies to Live By,” a series of interdependent tales, reflects the storyteller’s role in interpreting traditional stories for contemporary audiences, while preserving traditions based not in mysticism but in pragmatism. In “Calm Days,” three generations—the narrator, her grandfather, and her son—spend a week together on a remote island during the course of which they demonstrate the continuity of Ojibwe life. Together these stories weave the contemporary and the traditional to show how cultural diversity can be preserved even as cultural boundaries are transcended.

Lois Beardslee has been a teacher and writer for twenty-five years. She is also an accomplished artist, whose works are in public and private collections worldwide. Lois Beardslee practices many traditional art forms, including birch bark biting, quillwork, and sweetgrass basketry, as well as painting and illustration.
