When Water Monster caused the Great Flood, the thirty-two clans of the First People left their pleasant lands and migrated to the present world through an enormous hollow reed. In this marvellous collection, Franc Newcomb recounts some of the many tales she heard during long winter evenings at Blue Mesa, tales that describe the journey of the Din+© to this world and the efforts of the People to establish themselves here. Every person, animal, and insect who made the difficult descent was expected to bring some tangible magic, skill or knowledge to help to make the new world a place of harmony and beauty. Their stories fill this book.
