About this title:

Synopsis: Read about the greed of His’-sik the Skunk, about how Ah-ha’-le the coyote created humans, and about the quarreling couple who became Half Dome and North Dome. For centuries these stories have instructed and entertained the Indians of Yosemite. Presented here in a form that represents, as closely as possible, the way they were traditionally told and beautifully illustrated with the artwork of Maidu Indian Harry Fonseca these stories offer an alternative, older way of understanding a beloved American landscape.
