Taylor, C. J.

SUMMARY

The heavens -- the sun, the stars, and the moon -- have inspired, intrigued, and mystified us from the beginning of time. We've always searched for ways to comprehend their beauty and their meaning. Mohawk artist and author C. J. Taylor has drawn from First Nations legends from across North America to present a fascinating collection of stories inspired by the night skies. The legends -- Salish, Onondaga, Blackfoot, Netsilik (Inuit), Wasco, Ojibwa, and Cherokee -- are by turns funny, beautiful, tragic, and frightening, but each one is infused with a sense of awe. From the Ojibwa legend of the great hunter, White Hawk, and his love for an unattainable maiden, or the Salish legend of a magical lake that is threatened when human beings turn greedy and lose their respect for its gifts and for the sun's power, to the delightful Cherokee legend of Grandmother Spider who brought light to the world, this is an important collection that is enhanced by Taylor's glorious paintings.Taylor, C. J. is the author of 'All the Stars in the Sky Native Stories from the Heavens', published 2006 under ISBN 9780887767593 and ISBN 0887767591.
