Crews from Back40 Films have been filming and scouting locations near Sault Ste. Marie for a possible film adaptation of Loren Graham’s 1995 historical novel, ‘A Face In The Rock.’ The book is about an Indian, â€œPowers of the Air,â€ who was the lone survivor of a battle between his Ojibwe and their hated rival, the Sioux. He was sent back to tell his tribe of the tribesmen being wiped out in the battle.
The novel receives its name from a carving of “Powers of the Air” created in a sandstone rock on the shores of Lake Superior in 1820.

I have never heard of this book before coming across this article in The Mining Journal. The story has me intrigued and I have added it to my list of books to read.

Loren Graham is holding a book signing tonight from 4-7 pm at Falling Rock Cafe in Munising. The film production team will also be giving a brief presentation and their ideas for the film.
