When Raven first created people and animals to fill the beautiful world beneath his great tent of sky, a song of joy burst from his throat and brought everything to life. But as time passed, Raven's song was drowned out by shouting and violence as the people grew discontented and greedy. Angry and disappointed, Raven tore the shining sun out of the sky and hid it, leaving the people and land below in darkness.How his son, Little Darkness, brings light and Raven's song back to the world is beautifully told and illustrated by Amanda Hall in this original story woven from Native Alaskan folklore.
