96 pp, small 4to (10 1/8" H). Wonderful colour illustrations and decoration throughout. "Just as we have four grandparents, and our lives come from their lives, so we might describe fire, earth, water, and air as our 'Four Ancestors'. From the giant who pulled the sun across the sky to the mighty elk who created the earth, from the greedy monster who kept the rivers from flowing to the bird whose wings made the wind, this collection offers tales from more than twenty Native North American cultures. Joseph Bruchac's masterful storytelling combines with evocative illustrations by four Native American artists to create a unique celebration of the mystery and power of the natural world." Minor edge rubbing, slight curvature to front board. Dust jacket has very light rubbing on flap-folds, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of rear flap-fold and at top of spine, light fading to colour on middle section of spine.
