Details: Product Description Raven, the trickster, wants to give people the gift of light. But can he find out where Sky Chief keeps it? And if he does, will he be able to escape without being discovered? His dream seems impossible, but if anyone can find a way to bring light to the world, wise and clever Raven can! From Publishers Weekly In a starred review, PW called McDermott's retelling of a Native American tale describing the birth of the sun "crisply elegant.
