The words are mesmerizing; the artwork is stunning; the whole is dramatically beautiful. (Horn Book, January/February 1999)
Dramatic stylized paintings dominate each of these magnificently retold Northwest Coast folktales. The large, handsome format and layout capture the grandeur of life as seen through the eyes of native people. The book and accompanying CD-ROM, featuring stories read aloud by Chief Lelooska, are a perfect union. A sure-fire winner. (Teacher Librarian, June 1999)
The stories in this edition are fascinating and the artwork is mesmerizing. It's the sort of book you'll enjoy the first time through, then keep out on a table to look at again and again. (Eugene Register-Guard, October 24, 1999)
