Tricksters. How Glooskap Outwits the Ice Giants

I'm excited about today's post because I get to share a lot of books, all by author Howard Norman; you can read more about his work at Wikipedia.

First off is his collection of Glooscap stories: How Glooskap Outwits the Ice Giants: And Other Tales of the Maritime Indians.

He is also the author of a collection of stories about the Cree trickster Wisakedjak: Trickster and the Fainting Birds.

He wrote a book of Arctic stories for the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library: Northern Tales : Traditional Stories of Eskimo and Indian Peoples.

And... here's something really exciting: he did two books with illustrations by Leo and Diane Dillon. The first is a collection of Native stories from the Arctic: The Girl Who Dreamed Only Geese : And Other Tales of the Far North.

And the other book he did with the Dillons is a global anthology of folktales about birds: Between Heaven and Earth: Bird Tales from Around the World.

All these wonderful books are just a click away at the Internet Archive!
