Bears Make Rock Soup

A Picture Book by

In this collection of paintings and stories, painter Lisa Fifield and writer Lise Erdrich honor their Native American tradition in their own unique ways. Together they pay homage to the people, animals, forests, and rivers that have lived in harmony beneath the wide skies of the Plains.As winter falls, women fill the bellies of hungry bears with sweet stories, so they will sleep till spring. Crows call out a warning of enemy soldiers in pursuit so that a tribe may escape to safety unharmed. An abandoned yearling moose is cared for by children who find him crying for his mother. And animals of all stripes and feathers gather to pay respects to a beloved chief who has fallen defending his people
