Editor's note: this editioned print strongly resembles another title, The Girl Who Went to the Sky. It is possible that the images shown in that listing are studies of this title.

Illustration for an Athabascan folktale from the Yukon River country. A story about a girl who chased a butterfly into the sky where she was captured by Spider Woman for a wife for her youngest son. But the girl missed her family so much that Spider Woman spun a long thread and lowered the girl back to earth.
