First Man sends various animals to retrieve a drop of fresh water in order for him to create a stream or a lake in their parched land. But each one who tries fails, and their future is determined. Otter and beaver must live in the swampland; turtle and frog will dine on bugs. There seems to be no way to get the fresh water they need--until success comes from an unlikely source. Full color.

Part of the Navaho creation myth is told. The myth explains why animals are a certain way.The book would be useful in studying various myths of other Native Americans or other Navaho myths.
