Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All peoples have their own stories of how the Earth was created, what separated the land from the seas, and how the many animals, fish, and other creatures came to have their particular characteristics. The native tribes of North America are no different: they too have stories about the “way things began.” A fascinating collection of tales that explain the origins of tornadoes, forest fires, butterflies, horses, Niagara Falls, why dogs are our best friends, and even a very funny story of why owls and rabbits look the way they do.

Synopsis:

Taylor's books have helped youngsters around the world better appreciate the richness and diversity of Native American folklore.<P>"Taylor's staccato storytelling style lends crispness and verve; her...illustrations echo the visionary nature of a culture where the natural and spirit worlds often collide". — Publishers Weekly<P>"The paintings...are lavish and beautifully rendered". — Books in Canada
