Told as if the animals are human, this tale of two friends taking a journey together, confronting their fears and going on a vision quest has also been adapted for the theater. The elaborate drawings with characters in full native garb on horseback through the prairie combined with the moral/fable approach to the tale make it most appropriate for older children or even young adults.

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. ( )

This book has wonderful paintings displaying the adventure that they go through. The two young men set out on a journey all alone for the first time. They face and conquer experiences that teach them life lessons. They learn how to become men as they learn the responsibilities, obligations and what it takes to become an adult.
