The Bear Says North

Little Book Of Northern Tales
retold by Bob Barton

A collection of tales from Siberia, Norway, Russia, Lithuania, Sweden, Finland and Alaska. Starring animals, trolls and other mythical creatures, the stories will either enchant or mystify many readers. Out of ten tales, I only liked two - The Reindeer Herder and the Moon ( a reindeer hides a girl from the Moon, who has fallen in love with her) and How Frog Helped Prairie Wolf Bring Fire to the Humans (with the help of cougar, bear, bat and squirrel).
