Trickster: Native American Tales: A Graphic Collection
Coyote in the southwest desert wants to learn the pottery-making song of Horned Toad Lady. In the wet woodlands of the Choctaw homelands, Rabbit falls in love with Girl-Wolf. Raven in Alaska tricks men into giving up their freshly-caught whale meat. Pretending to be dead is another common trick in order to get a meal without expending too much effort; this same theme is also found in Stories of Our People: A Metis Graphic Novel Anthology.
