This new edition of a collaboration between one of the finest living artists in North America and one of Canada’s finest poets includes a new introduction by the distinguished anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss. Ten masterful, complex drawings by Bill Reid and ten tales demonstrate the richness and range of Haida mythology, from bawdy yet profound tales of the trickster Raven to poignant, imagistic narratives of love and its complications in a world where animals speak, dreams come real, and demigods, monsters, and men live side by side.

In The Raven Steal the Light, Haida artist Reid puts together drawings that go along with Haida myths and are mostly about Raven. This book covers many topics through the use of Haida myths and the life of ravens with the help of Reid’s illustrations that are bold and dramatic to the myths.

Page 1/3 The Raven Steals the Light Haida tribal myth, as told by Bill Reid & Robert Bringhurst Before there was anything, before the great flood had covered the earth and receded, before the animals walked the earth or the trees covered the land or the birds flew between the trees, even before the fish and the whales and seals swam i. The Raven, who of course existed at that time, because he had always existed and always would, was somewhat less than satisfied with this state of affairs, since it led to an awful lot of blundering around and bumping into things.

Raven decided to steal the light. Raven waited until the old man’s daughter went down to the river to collect water. Just as she was dipping her basket into the river, he changed himself into a hemlock needle. Raven became spoilt and greedy. He was bored with all his toys, and wanted to play with the box that held the light. Finally the grandfather opened the box and tossed the glowing ball of light to Raven. As soon as Raven caught the light, he immediately changed into his bird form. Holding the light in his beak, he flew up the chimney hole into the dark world. The magician was angry. He wanted to get the light back into his box. He flew after Raven.

Talk about The Raven Steals the Light


Bliss
The Raven Steals the Light is a superb gem of a book that recounts and illustrates Haida myths. It is written by Bill Reid, a Haida who is an incredibly talented artist and story teller and Robert Bringhurst, an expert on Native American literature. The intro is by noted anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss. I purchased it to help prepare me for a trip to Haida Gwaii (formerly known as British Columbia's Queen Charlotte Islands), home of the Haida people. These engaging stories, as many myths, are meant to be recounted orally. Reid's preface tells the reader that the myths are "a good selection of bestiality, adultery, violence, thievery and assault, for those who like that sort of thing." More than that, they are beautifully written and illustrated cultural gems that include Haida creation myths and other key cultural stories, but they are meant for adults and not for children.

I was really impressed with the richness of Bill Reid's writing. It is full of emotion, humor and detail! The writing feels ALIVE - not enshrouding long ago stories, but bringing them vividly to life!
Preve
There's much to be learned from prehistoric belief systems and this collection of stories is just that. The need to understand the natural world around us and our place in it along with explaining the existence of consciousness in us and whether in other creatures. Well told by a fine artist.

I recently was in Haida Gwaii and heard stories from this book. A delightful experience to meet Haida people then read this book.
Kulafyn
Perhaps the best compilation of Haida oral traditions by famous carver Bill Reid with accompanying illustrations. These are stories written to be heard out loud.

I purchased this book to read with my grandsons on a trip to Alaska. The first two stories explaining how stars and the moon came to the heavens and how lakes and creeks were created was exactly what I wanted. But...other stories about Raven are, in my opinion, too sexual for a younger audience.
