THE STORY OF LIGHT

In this Cherokee tale the animal people send possum, then buzzard, for light to dispel the dark on their side of the world; but lowly spider is the one who is finally able to bring the sun to her people. Roth illustrates her gracefully cadenced text with dramatic collages (they look like linoleum prints) in black and brilliant yellow. A striking book distinguished by outstanding use of graphics.
