Crow and Weasel

By: Barry Lopez

Illustrated By:  Tom Pohrt

 "Remember only this one thing," said Badger.  "The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them.  If stories come to you, care for them.  And learn to give them away where they are needed.  Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive.  That is why we put these stories in each other's memory.  This is how people care for themselves."

In this novella-length fable, Barry Lopez, the best selling author of Arctic Dreams and Of Wolves and Men, returns to his abiding concerns---our spiritual relationship to the landscape, respect for traditions different from our own, and our human obligations to one another. The text resonates with cultural values like gift exchange and courtesy toward the land that are preserved in many Native American communities today.

Tom Pohrt's paintings, based on indigenous clothing and artifacts of the northern plains and charged with otherworldly realism, not only make this marvelous quest come alive but also powerfully amplify its message.

What Crow and Weasel gain on this journey, and what they share with us, is a sense of what is worth doing in life. And, as we recognize in each of them the first trains of wisdom and tolerance, we find in Crow and Weasel an allegory of hope.
