Crow And Weasel

Long ago, when people and animals spoke the same language, two young men left their tribe to make an adventurous voyage through the wilderness, into the unknown northland. Set in the mythic past and inspired by the traditions of the North American Plains people, this fable of self-discovery follows Crow and Weasel as they face unfamiliar perils on a quest for knowledge and wisdom. Conquering their innermost fears, the two heroes come of age and learn more than they ever could have imagined--about humanity's relationship to the land, the importance of respecting other peoples and giving thanks, and even the very nature of friendship itself.

Reviews
"A brilliantly written and totally original New World adventure." - Jean Craighead George

“Mr. Lopez's story is a wonderful one, that is, full of wonders. It is a journey through a vast landscape, every part of which is electric with life and danger. It is also an interior, spiritual journey toward wisdom. And the illustrations are brilliant.”Paula Fox

“Crow and Weasel 
are two young men of the Northern plains who undertake a journey through unexplored wilderness to the tundra and back. Their quest is also a fable of inner discovery based on ideas and traditions of early American Indians. An engrossing story, which is imaginatively illustrated.”The New Yorker
