Paul Owen Lewis
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Haida; Tlingit;

When frogs suddenly vanish from a lake behind a village on the Northwest Coast, a nearby volcano awakens and a native girl is called to a dangerous adventure. Following the rich mythic traditions of Native peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, the stories often tell of individuals cast mysteriously into parallel worlds inhabited by animals in human form.

Summoned to a spectacular world beneath the lake, the girl is questioned by "Grandmother" about the disappearance of her "children." Just who is this mysterious old woman? And what will happen if her children are not returned? What follows both answers and deepens the mystery. 

Careful attention is paid to historical detail both in the story and in the vibrant illustrations. Frog Girl follows the rich mythic traditions of the Haida, Tlingit and other Native peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, whose stories often tell of individuals cast mysteriously into parallel worlds inhabited by animals in human form.

How Raven Stole the Sun (Tales of the People)
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Tlingit;

A long time ago, Raven was pure white, like fresh snow in winter. This was so long ago that the only light came from campfires, because a greedy chief kept the stars, moon, and sun locked up in elaborately carved boxes. Determined to free them, the shape-shifting Raven resourcefully transformed himself into the chief's baby grandson and cleverly tricked him into opening the boxes and releasing the starlight and moonlight. Though tired of being stuck in human form, Raven maintained his disguise until he got the chief to open the box with the sun and flood the world with daylight, at which point he gleefully transformed himself back into a raven. When the furious chief locked him in the house, Raven was forced to escape through the small smokehole at the top--and that's why ravens are now black as smoke instead of white as snow.

This engaging Tlingit story is brought to life in painted illustrations that convey a sense of the traditional life of the Northwest Coast peoples.
