This collection of contemporary Native American stories pays homage to the people, animals, forests, and rivers of the Great Plains. With stories such as one set on a winter's eve, in which the women fill the bellies of hungry bears with sweet stories so they sleep until spring, Erdich and Fifield honor their ancestral traditions. Full-color illustrations.
