Here, greedy, boastful Coyote cannot wait for the newly-formed earth to dry, and leaves footprints on it that make mountain ridges and valleys. Brave Blue Jay and Ground Squirrel steal dawn from the Dawn People to shaare it with the world. Other creatures, some brave, some foolish, come comical or wicked, scurry through these tales told with humor and a storyteller's relish.
