Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A collection of 41 Alaskan Indian tales, transcribed in 1935 by Frederica de Laguna and Norman Reynolds during an archaeological survey of the middle and lower Yukon River valley, are beautifully illustrated with 71 original wood engravings by Dale DeArmond. The stories, set in Distant Time when animals and birds were "human," range from serious myths to slyly humorous misadventures, including the exploits of the roguish Crow.
