These original stories, based on the Deaf experience, are compelling works of ASL literature and comprise our first set of the ASL Literature Series. The videotape of these two stories is available as a literature Collector's Edition for your appreciation of ASL storytelling. Ben Bahan's fable, "Bird of a Different Feather," explores the differences of a bird within a family of eagles. Rather than accepting the bird's differences, the eagle family tries to apply a pathological approach to raising the unusual bird. It is an odyssey familiar to many deaf people. Sam Supalla's "For a Decent Living," the protagonist is a deaf boy on a journey to find his deaf identity. Escaping from his unsympathetic hearing family, he faces the continuing dilemma of proving himself to his family, the deaf community, and society at large. Bahan and Supalla are both masterful ASL storytellers and offer us keen insights into the "Deaf experience".
