How Magpie Got His Yellow Bill
Weight 1.00 lbs


welcome to a magical world where the people, the birds, and animals all spoke a single language in the California Indian canyon named "Culloma" (Coloma), just before the 1848 gold discovery days. It's the story of a sour-tempered magpie, Ah-tah'-tee, and about learning healthful character values for living in balance. As the story unfolds, magpie, like Trickster Coyote, becomes a Teacher of what not to do. This family story by educator and author, Richard Burrill, is joined with traditional California Indian songs to bring to life the Maidu culture in which the story is set. Truly a story to cherish and learn from for many years to come. Illustrated with pen and ink drawings. Saddlestitched: 42 pages: 7 x 9"
