From the cover: “For ‘children of all ages’ these stories have a unique attraction, be-cause Joan Grant wrote them and the illustrations by Ralph Layers are vivid with life. From the creation legends, Redskin Morning and First Man: First Woman, to the initiation into the Happy Hunting Grounds, through the Cavern of the Blind Fish, we come to know people, to share their courage and their humour, to understand their belief in the Laws of the Great Hunters by which men and animals recognise their kinship.”
