The Raven Steals the Light by Bill Reid and Robert Bringhurst
The Raven Steals the Light is a critically acclaimed collection of ten authentic retellings of traditional Haida myths and legends illustrated and written by legendary Haida artist Bill Reid in collaboration with Robert Bringhurst. Following a new preface by Claude Levi-Strauss, the stories unfold ranging from bawdy tales of how the first Haida were brought to Haida Gwaii, to poignant narratives of the complexities of love in a world where animals speak, dreams come alive, and demigods, monsters, and people live side by side.
