Four spellbinding stories from Native American lore. In the first, the Raven, great trickster bird of all the Northwest Native American tribes, creates the world and the creatures in it. When Man complains about the darkness Raven fills the sky with the sun, the moon and the stars. Soon the new inventions are stolen by the greedy Ganuk. Raven turns himself into Ganuk's infant grandson to return the lights to the sky. In the second story, Raven disintegrates a giant, blood-thirsty cannibal into all the mosquitoes of the world. In the third story Raven's tragic love affair with the beautiful spirit found inside a whale shows that even the creator of the world can be unsuccessful in love. In the final story the fish have disappeared and mankind is starving. Raven finds Halibut, the greatest fish of them all, and convinces him to return. All the creatures of the world celebrate the unending bounty of the ocean.
