Synopsis from the book:
Listen to Grandmother and she will tell you about Berry Woman's Children: ravens and walrus, crab and porcupine, eagle and sea otter, polar bear, whale, puffin and seal, and other less familiar animals. Dale DeArmond has drawn on Eskimo myth and folklore for these appealing fables and illustrated them with wood engravings to create an unusual and striking picture book.
