From the author of the award-winning Arctic Dreams, a beautifully illustrated fable that tells the adventurous tale of the passage into manhood of two boys.From the Inside Flap:
On their bold and wonderful journey, Crown and Weasel meet with terrifying danger and spectacular beauty. They come face to face with Eskimos who welcome the young travellers to their hunting camp on the edge of the tundra. In this novella-length fable, Barry Lopez, bestselling author of Arctic Dreams and Of Wolves and Men, and recipient of the National Book Award and the John Burroughs Medal for nature writing, returns to his abiding concerns - our spiritual relationship with the landscape, respect for traditions different from our own, and our human obligations to one another. Tom Pohrt's paintings, based on indigenous clothing and artefacts of the northern plains, bring to life this marvellous quest and amplify its message. 2 cassettes.
