Raven's Call and more Northwest Coast Stories
Robert James Challenger uses the form of parables to teach children important values. The observations of Grandmother and other family members interpret the actions of nature’s creatures in a variety of circumstances. His simple, direct stories reflect a philosophy widely embraced—respect for our environment and understanding of all creeds, races and generations.
Each of the 18 stories is illustrated by a graceful motif that reflects the strong influence of First Nations art on Challenger’s work.
