"I am in awe of what you are holding and witnessing with The Man Who Lived with a Giant. Reminiscent of George Blondin's When the World was New and Trail of the Spirit, this book is not only a treasure for the people of Denendeh, it is a garden of renewal for the world to learn from."

Richard Van Camp, Writer


"Johnny’s traditional and life stories are nothing short of exquisite, offering an important window into Dene traditions and history. What a find!"
