A retelling of the Christopher Columbus story from a Native point of view turns this tale on its ear! Coyote, the trickster, creates the world and all the creatures in it. She is able to control all events to her advantage until a funny-looking red-haired man named Columbus changes her plans. He is unimpressed by the wealth of moose, turtles and beavers in Coyote's land. Instead he is interested in the human beings he can take to sell in Spain.Thomas King uses a bag of literary tricks to shatter the stereotypes surrounding Columbus's voyages. In doingso, he invites children to laugh with him at the crazy antics of Coyote, who unwittingly allows Columbus to bringabout the downfall of his human friends. And he makes the point that history is influenced by the culture of the reporter.
