Raven Steals the Light

An elegant reissue of a timeless collection of Haida myths, with a new preface by Claude Lévi-Strauss.

Ten masterful, complex drawings by Bill Reid are accompanied by ten episodes from Haida mythology told by Bill Reid and Robert Bringhurst. The result brings Haida art and mythology alive as never before in an English-speaking world. The collection includes, says Reid, " a good selection of bestiality, adultery, violence, thievery and assault, for those who like that sort of thing.
