Librivox’s weekly poetry project for the week of February 5, 2006 offers fourteen versions of «The Song My Paddle Sings» from the collection Flint and Feather by E. Pauline Johnson.
E. Pauline Johnson, also known as Tekahionwake, was born to the Mohawk Chief G.H.M. Johnson (Onwanonsyshon), and his wife, Emily S. Howells, a lady of pure English parentage. Pauline, born and raised in Canada, was a great reader and began writing poetry as a child. She died in 1913 after having poetry published in periodicals in several countires and collections of her work published in book form.
