In Goble's second book about the comically clever/stupid Lakota trickster, Iktomi almost drowns trying to pick the reflections of buffalo berries at the bottom of the river. Again, suggested interpolations--where listeners are traditionally encouraged to interrupt--are printed in lighter italics. Additional comments from Iktomi caption the illustrations, here dominated by Iktomi himself, overburdened with equipment for his hunt, and the wonderfully striated, blue-green river. As usual, Goble includes careful notes; he also, cleverly, uses this story to answer Native American critics by having Iktomi say at the outset, "I don't like it--That white guy. . .is telling stories about me again. . ." Ironically, Iktomi (spider) is a disreputable liar; Goble says that the Lakota also use their word for the spider trickster to mean white man: he's untrustworthy, but a source of useful inventions. Beautiful bookmaking; an entertaining, authentic story.
