Gabriel’s Crossing

This writing (click on Gabriel’s Crossing to open the pdf) was inspired by stories that amm’s Grannie Utley shared about her encounters with Gabriel Dumont when she was a little girl. It wasn’t until almost a year after her first granddaughter Madeleine was born that amm realized the connection to the little girl in this story.

Gabriel’s Crossing originally appeared in Jumbo Gumbo – Songs, Poems and Stories for Children, published by Coteau Books in Regina, Canada. Many thanks to Coteau Books for granting permission to share Gabriel’s Crossing. www.coteaubooks.com
