Klopinum entertained her young friend with her peoples stories of the way things were when the world was young, and Anne was so fascinated that Klopinum requested, when she became a grown woman herself, that she pass the stories on to the children of her time.These are stories of how Raven freed the moon when an old fisherwoman trapped it in a cedar chest- of how Loon lost her voice while she was rescuing daylight from evil spirits who had taken it prisoner- of how the worlds water disappeared, and it was up to Raven to release it from the belly of a giant frog- of the love between Orca and Osprey, and how their union produced a new animal, which we call the killer whale. All these and more, are heard on Loon and Raven Tales, where for the first time we can hear the humour and wisdom of Anne Camerons prose shine through in the authors captivating readings of classic west coast lore.
