"In the model Ainu village on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, Old Ekashi is one of the few storytellers who can remember the drama and excitement of ancient customs, legends and magic. Toko and Haruko beg their grandfather to repeat their favorite tales of Kamui, the Great-and-Important God, who sent lesser gods from the Sky Country to teach, protect and guide the Ainu people. Although Ekashi's eyes twinkle as he explains why the lark never flies very high, why the Ainu have no books and why the sparrow has only one dark spot on her beak, he doest not reveal just how much of his fabulous accounts of myth and folklore he really believes."
