A well-done modern adaptation of a traditional Potawatomi tale, where Coyote leaves the rez to secure a job as rodent control officer at the World Trade Center.

 

This is a well-done modern adaptation of a traditional Potawatomi tale, this time with Coyote leaving the reservation and heading for New York City, where he secures a job as rodent control officer at the World Trade Center. Lonely for home and looking for escape from the noise of the city, he goes up to the observation deck for some solitude, and there is smitten by a star in the night sky. 

(Note: This story was published before the World Trade Center ceased to be. It can have value for children in a number of ways.)
