The epic story of Hiawatha and his fantastic magical powers
Angered by the sight of warring nations, Gitche Manito, Mohican Masters of Life, sends for the prophets Hiawatha to bring peace. Brought up by his grandmother on the shores of Lake superior, Hiawatha learns to use his remarkable powers for good of humanity: wearing his magic moccasins he covers a mile with every step; grinds boulders to dust with his special mittens: speaks with all kinds of animals and birds in their own language. Overcoming evil forces, Hiwatha offers the gift of civilization to the world. His marriage to Minnehaha leads to golden age of happiness and peace–unitl the reappearance of mischievous spirits leads Hiawatha into further adventures.
The song of Hiawathareflects the traditional Native American way of story–telling.Highly controversial when first published, Longfellow's epic poem has nonetheless created a legend still loved by millions.
