Almost seems to be aimed at someone with knowledge of Ojibwe. But the audio is pretty good and useful for those of us who don't live around the Great Lakes!

The grammar isn't very long, but has a lot of tables and verbs. However there's no index and it uses an older orthography. It may be helpful, but I'm going to having a write out an index myself.
The reader is what I feared: it's a book that was written by missionaries to help Mi'kmaq people learn to read, and then learn to read in English. So it has a lot of word lists of nouns (birds, plants, Nova Scotia geography, etc.), which aren't very helpful at my level since the bulk of learning many NAILs is grammar, syntax and verbs, right? It has a few reading passages that I can use, but because the goal of the book was to get Mi'kmaq reading in English, and make them good Christians in the process, it goes from short passages in Mi'gmaq only to longer passages from the Bible that have the English written directly beneath the Mi'gmaq. I'll see what I can get out of it.

I didn't see them because the name of the language is not in bold letters!

These links are not in the first post, but almost at the end of the first page.
I think the book is not in the thread.

I know you’ve asked for help with your English before, I don’t want you thinking that fell on deaf ears.
