Funny You Don't Look Like One: Observations From a Blue-Eyed Ojibway is the first collection of articles and personal essays by playwright and columnist Drew Hayden Taylor. Topics include life on the reserve, mosquitoes, TV programs, movies, books, art, relationships, powwows and the Department of Indian Affairs each contains that subtle touch of humour.

Further Adventures of a Blue-Eyed Ojibway: Funny, You Don't Look Like One Two is the sequel to Funny, You Don't Look Like One by Canada's most prolific Native playwright and columnist. Ojibway author Drew Hayden Taylor writes deliciously witty essays about contemporary Native cultures and issues. He shares anecdotes from his travels and experiences in this second compilation from his newspaper column. This collection of humour is a must read. Suitable for high school, university literature courses and anyone who wants to experience the healing power of Native humour.

In this volume, Drew tells us about his adventures in Belgium, Venice and some far off place called Winnipeg, along with his personal opinions on topics as varied as Identity, relationships, aboriginal horoscopes, and Indigenous humour.

Futile Observations of a Blue-Eyed Ojibway: Funny, You Don't Look Like One, #4 is Ojibwe writer Drew Hayden Taylor's final installment of his humour-filled collection of essays and editorials. Topics in this collection cover Indian identity, reserve politics, art, literature, HaidaBucks vs. Starbucks, gay marriage, Christmas, SARS, and world travel.

The Best of Funny, You Don’t Look Like One is a collection of the author’s hand picked favorites from the popular first three collections of stories about the clashes between native life and those he calls the “Colour-Challenged, Pigment-Denied People of the Pallor.” With laid-back humour, he addresses serious issues with a sensitivity that pokes holes in the stereotypes both natives and non-natives have of each other and themselves.
