The Stolen Sun: A Story of Native Alaska by Amanda Hall (Author)
Drawn from native Alaskan folklore, Amanda Hall tells a story about Raven who created world. He created animals and people and gives them a special song to sing to remind them to respect the life around them. When Raven sees that people have become greedy and disrespectful of the resources around them, he punishes them by taking away the sun, leaving the world to freeze. Before returning to his home above the sky, he leaves one single feather behind.
When a woman swallows the feather, she gives birth to a boy, "Little Darkness," who redeems the world and brings back the sun.
