Publisher Description:
Celebrate earth's bounty and the inherent value of all living things with a
lavish anthology of traditional Native American animal and nature lore,
selected and retold especially for young children. Representing 20 tribes and
every ethnological region, this definitive treasury includes "Raven, the
Rainmaker, " the Tlingit tale of a generous act that brought fresh water to the
earth; "The Corn Song, " from the Dine, which celebrates the blue grain that is
the tribe's staff of life; and "Coyote and the Blackbirds, " a hilarious Pueblo
legend about a conceited coyote who gets his comeuppance. This rich reference
tool also contains an introduction, appendix, map, and informative source
notes. Nancy Van Laan's spirited retellings and Lisa Desimini's stunning
multimedia artwork make this an ideal read-aloud and a must-have addition to
folklore collections. A Children's Book-of-the-Month Club Selection.
