This traditional Karuk tale features a familiar character, Coyote. Although he frequently shows up as a trickster in Californian Indian tales, in this story,Coyote is portrayed as a wise elder. He comes up with the plan to steal fire from the wicked and selfish Yellowjackets, but the plan will only work if all the animals work together. Coyote flatters the Yellowjackets until he is able to steal the fire. Then in relay race fashion, he passes the flame onto Eagle, Eagle passes it on to Mountain Lion, etc. The fire ends up in a willow tree. Coyote then teaches the other animals how to draw fire from wood in order to keep warm and cook food. Sylvia Long's illustrations are outstanding! This book will be a nice addition to some of the other Native Californian legends in my fourth grade classroom.
