With grace and drama, Abenaki poet and author Joseph Bruchac retells traditional native legends of ten of America’s most awe-inspiring natural landscapes. These wise stories, together with Thomas Locker’s luminous paintings, evoke the essential spiritual power of the earth. A full-color map charting the homelands of nearly two hundred North American tribes is included. “An excellent choice that will provoke both introspection and discussion.”--The Horn Book
