HOW THE SUN MADE A PROMISE AND KEPT IT: A Canadian Indian Myth

Earth Namer, ""in the beginning of the world when there was water everywhere,"" climbs down a feather rope to turtle's raft and makes dry land from the earth that turtle fetches from the bottom of the water; human Weese-ke-jak catches the sun in a net and beaver sets him free; and coyote unwittingly foils the animals' attempt to steal fire from the wind people -- in three entertaining Indian origin tales, nicely adapted for beginning readers and illustrated in easygoing, childlike line cartoons on pleasantly mottled colored paper.
