for The Story of the Milky Way by Joseph Bruchac, Gayle Ross, and Virginia A. Stroud
The legend of the Milky Way tells of an elderly couple who lived long ago. One day they discovered that a giant spirit dog had stolen some of their cornmeal--and drove the dog from the village into the night sky. The band of stars that formed in its wake is the Milky Way. Exquisite paintings illuminate a lyrical text by two renowned Native American storytellers.
