FICTION / Fairy Tales, Folk Tales, Legends & Mythology

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."

Bill Reid, one of the finest artists to work in the Native American tradition, has numerous books documenting and revering his visual art. He is also the author of Solitary Raven, Out of the Silence and, with Bill Holm, Indian Art of the Northwest Coast: A Dialogue on Craftsmanship and Aesthetics.

Robert Bringhurst, one of Canada’s leading poets and book designers, worked and studied with Bill Reid throughout the 1980s. The fruits of this association include a much-loved book of stories, The Raven Steals the Light, as well as Bringhurst and Ulli Steltzer’s book The Black Canoe, a study of Reid’s masterly sculpture. He lives on Quadra Island, British Columbia.
