When a chief’s spoiled young daughter sets out to collect berries, she sees no reason to sing bear songs like her friends do--why should she honor the creatures of the forest? This traditional Native American tale from the Pacific Northwest offers a compelling lesson of tolerance and respect for the natural world. “A graceful and poignant retelling.”--Publishers Weekly
