Bears Make Rock Soup: And Other Stories by Lise Erdrich 32 pages
"In Bears Make Rock Soup, writer Lise Erdrich and painter Lisa Fifield
honor their Native American ancestral traditions. As winter falls, women
fill the bellies of hungry bears with sweet stories so they will sleep
till spring. Crows warn of enemies in pursuit so that a tribe may escape
to safety. Children care for an abandoned moose they find crying for
its mother. And animals of all stripes and feathers gather to pay
respects to a beloved chief who has fallen while defending his people."
