A group of creatures not yet fully human and not knowing anything but Night, Winter, and Cold depart on a search for Summer so they can console one of their little ones. This version of the classic Innu legend is a slimmer adaptation of a longer story that was first encountered by European explorers in the late 19th century. Told in various forms all across North America from the Indians of the American West to the Atlantic Coast of Labrador, the myth that makes up the foundation of First Spring shows as all creation myths do the universal concerns of humankind. These themes are given radiant life by Geneviève Côté’s shimmering watercolor images.
