9780027888454: Coyote Places the Stars (English and English Edition)

In this retelling of a Wasco Indian legend, Coyote shoots arrows at the stars, rearranging them in order to make pictures in the night sky. Whenever the sound of Coyote's howl is heard today, "He is calling you to go to your window, gaze at the star pictures, and to dream". Illustrated in striking southwestern-style art. Full color throughout.

From the Back Cover:

One evening, crafty coyote climbs the moon to discover the secrets of the heavens. Instead, he finds a way to make the most wonderful pictures for all the world to see. The next night, the other animals of the canyon look up to the sky, where they see a big surprise! Based on a Wasco Indian legend, this story about the origin of the constellations is joyfully retold and vibrantly illustrated.
