Published just in time to be a great Christmas gift idea, this new book Raven and the Salmonberry Rapture is illustrated with beautiful paintings by local artist Alfred Muma. The stories have been adapted by Texada Island author JF Woods from Haida Texts and Myths (1905) and introduced by John Wesley of Skidegate, Haida Gwaii.

The author was a former postmaster on Haida Gwaii and he worked alongside Haida storytellers to bring the book and stories to life.

Raven and the Salmonberry Rapture are now available at Kingfisher Used Books, Artique and Windspirit Gallery, all in Powell River. The book is selling for $30 with $12.50 from each sale going to the Council of the Haida Nation to support their Haida Language-Immersion programs.
