Book No. 70.

I rarely come upon stories from the Northwest Coast. Having said that, I think I need to emphasize that the art and relics I've seen in the National Museum of the American Indian are both haunting and beautiful.

Paul Owen Lewis has captured not only the feel of ages-old story spoken by an elder to his tribe, but also the reverence for these stories, both in his selective words and powerful illustrations.

I think it's time to find more books by Paul Owen Lewis!
