The Stone Canoe is a collection of stories that Peyton – as a young man, early in the 20th century – heard among the Ojibway Indians. In this book the now deceased talented storyteller and artist told and illustrated these Native American stories of mirth, sadness, and survival from the Northwoods in an evocative, engaging, and acclaimed style.

The Stone Canoe will be appreciated by readers interested in myths and legends of Native Americans generally and, almost certainly, it will become a "must have" title on the bookshelves of readers interested in the Northwoods experience. The Stone Canoe won the 1991 Minnesota Book Award.
