Publisher Comments:

"A brilliantly written and totally original New World adventure." - Jean Craighead George

Long ago, when people and animals spoke the same language, two young men left their tribe to make an adventurous voyage through the wilderness, into the unknown northland. Set in the mythic past and inspired by the traditions of the North American Plains people, this fable of self-discovery follows Crow and Weasel as they face unfamiliar perils on a quest for knowledge and wisdom. Conquering their innermost fears, the two heroes come of age and learn more than they ever could have imagined--about humanity's relationship to the land, the importance of respecting other peoples and giving thanks, and even the ery nature of friendship itself.

Synopsis:

"A brilliantly written and totally original New World adventure" (Jean Craighead George), about two young men of the Northern Plains "who undertake a journey through unexplored wilderness to the tundra and back" ("The New Yorker"). Full color.
