Orca’s Family: And More Northwest Coast Stories
These fables combine echoes of Aesop with the oral tradition of Native American storytellers, as animal characters teach important lessons. Children relate the experiences of animals like Beaver, who shows us how to achieve our dreams; and Owl, who teaches that we learn by watching and listening to the world around us. These stories contain a deep respect for the natural world and suggest that magical transformations are possible there. Parents, grandparents, and teachers will embrace this second collection of Challenger's stories that, like all fables, pass cultural values to the younger generation. Jim Challenger has created beautiful color illustrations to accompany the 19 new stories.
