When Raven fills the world with creatures, a song of joy bursts from his throat and brings everything to life. But as time passes, his song is droned by shouting as people greedily capture and kill the living things around them - and with an angy shriek he hides the shining sun away, leaving the people below to freeze in darkness. How his son, Little Darkness, brings light and the Raven's song back to the world is beautifully told and illustrated in an original story woven from Native Alaskan folklore
