A multilingual retelling of a Tsimshian creation legend in English, French and Gitxsanimax. Grandfather Sky Chief kept all light locked in a box. Curious Raven wanted the glowing box. He managed to convince Grandfather to give it to him. As soon as Sky Chief offered it to him, Raven flew out the smoke hole and opened it. The sun escaped from the box and the day began. No sources are available for this legend. Black and white traditional motifs frame the text and full colour illustrations are interspersed throughout the story.
