Kayuqtullu, Tulugatlu, Suli Atlat Annugaurut (Foxes and Ravens and Other Creatures).
Douglas, Arthur, Sr.; And Others
Four short stories taken from Alaskan oral tradition are written in plain terms and presented in large print with illustrations on each page. "The Little Mouse" describes how a courageous mouse swims across a river only to discover it is just a man's footprint. In "The Loon and the Muskrat" two animals become possessive of the lake where they live, then decide to share the territory. "Daisy and Tulagaq" is the story of how a cleaver ground squirrel outwits a raven. In "The Fox and the Raven" the crafty fox flatters an ugly woman and receives a gift, but the honest raven receives nothing. The Inupiat version is also included. (SB)
