"Astace, a young Gitxsan hunter, is intent on catching a group of swans with his bare hands. He is carried away by the birds' powerful wings and dropped in the clouds. With only a cedar box of water Astace wanders the clouds, growing weaker, stumbling and spilling the contents. When he finally returns to earth he discovers lakes, creeks, and rivers where there were none before. The Gitxsan rejoice at having him home, and name the new river they live alongside Ksien--'juice from the clouds'."--Provided by the publisher.

Excellent children's book that tells the story of how the rivers and lakes of northern British Columbia were created. The artwork by Roy Henry Vickers makes the story even more alive.
