A retelling of a Tlingit tale the author first heard from her father. Its the story of how the Raven transformed himself to bring light to what had been an earth shrouded in darkness — and explains why “why ravens are now black as smoke instead of white as snow.” Part of the Abbeville “Tales of the People” series of books for young readers, published in partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.
