An elegant reissue of a timeless collection of Haida myths, with a new preface by Claude Levi-Strauss .

Ten masterful, complex drawings by Bill Reid are accompanied by ten episodes from Haida mythology told by Bill Reid and Robert Bringhurst . The result brings Haida art and mythology alive as never before in an English-speaking world. The collection includes, says Reid , "a good selection of bestiality, adultery, violence, thievery and assault, for those who like that sort of thing."
