91 pp, 10 1/2" H. "The ten masterful, complex (b&w) drawings by Bill Reid and the ten episodes from Haida mythology, told by Bill Reid and Robert Bringhurst, complement each other and bring Haida art and mythology alive as never before in an English-speaking world. The collection includes, says Reid, 'a good selection of bestiality, adultery, violence, thievery and assault' (and) demonstrate the richness and range of Haida Mythology, from bawdy yet profound tales of the trickster Raven to poignant, imagistic narratives of love and its complications in a world where animals speak, dreams come real, and demigods, monsters and men live side by side." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
