Editor's note: as is the case with the colors for many "Raven" prints, while the book contains a greener image, the actual print contains a more bluish image.

​​There was no fresh water in the world except for an everlasting spring which Petrel guarded and kept for himself. Raven stole the water from Petrel and escaped through the smokehole but his white feathers were blackened by Petrel's pitchwood fire. After he escaped Raven used the water to make the great rivers of Alaska. The drops that fell from his mouth became the small salmon streams.
