CROW AND WEASEL offers a gentle retelling of the vision quest of two young men. They seek to fulfill
the dream of MOUNTAIN LION, a village elder, to learn about the unknown and unexplored lands north of their village.

Traveling on horseback, they encounter vast new terrain and animals until they reach the Inuit people
who come to welcome and to teach them.

The mood remains low suspense until taking a gruesome turn as they decide to eat
one of their horses rather than starve. GRIZZLY BEAR arrives in time to spare
this tale from horror.

Paintings are Five Star amazing. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0865474397, Hardcover)

In the distant era of myth time, when people and animals still spoke the same language, two young men set out on horseback to travel farther north than any of their people had ever gone before. On their bold and wonderful journey-across the River of Floating Ashes, through a vastly deep forest, and around a bewildering maze of lakes-Crow and Weasel meet with terrifying danger and spectacular beauty to arrive, at last, at an Eskimo hunting camp on the edge of the tundra.

From each other and from strangers they meet along the way-Mouse, Badger, Grizzly Bear-Crow and Weasel learn profound lessons: the value of friendship; the necessity of giving thanks; the art of storytelling; and the importance of interacting with others in finding one's own place in the world.
