A Man Called Raven
Author: Richard Van Camp
Illustrator: George Littlechild
Publisher: Children's Book Press (1997)
A contemporary story about a mysterious man who teaches two Native American boys the meaning of respect for nature offers a tribute to the wisdom of the raven and a positive reminder that we can all learn from nature.
When Chris and Toby Greyeyes find a raven in the garage, they try to trap it and hurt it with hockey sticks. To them, ravens are just a nuisance because they spread garbage all over the street. Or so they think—until a mysterious man who smells like pine needles enters their lives and teaches them his story of the raven.
