Native Stories from the Heavens
Tundra Books (NY), 9780887767593, 38pp.
Publication Date: October 10, 2006
The legends Salish, Onondaga, Blackfoot, Netsilik (Inuit), Wasco, Ojibwa, and Cherokee are by turns funny, beautiful, tragic, and frightening, but each one is infused with a sense of awe.
From the Ojibwa legend of the great hunter, White Hawk, and his love for an unattainable maiden, or the Salish legend of a magical lake that is threatened when human beings turn greedy and lose their respect for its gifts and for the sun's power, to the delightful Cherokee legend of Grandmother Spider who brought light to the world, this is an important collection that is enhanced by Taylor's glorious paintings.
