            "Raven's Niece sets out to save her village in this modern take on Tlingit oral traditions of Raven and origin stories. This is an original story written by Miranda Rose Kaagweil Worl. Though inspired by ancient oral traditions that have been handed down through the generations, it is not a traditional Tlingit story." (Publisher Website)
