“Long ago my story was walking around, a forest lodge man with clothing made of sheets of moss and with strips of ashwood for his belt. And this is the place where my story decided to camp. And here the story of Gluskabi begins. How the great trickster-hero Gluskabi learned that you can’t keep all the game animals in a bag, how he learned that it’s not a good thing to capture the Wind Eagle, how he brought tobacco to the people and defeated the water monster, and how he brought the summer season. Kahionhes’s pen-and-ink illustrations complement these very readable stories.
