Hutash the earth goddess must decide what to do with her tribe when the Chumash people grow too numerous for their island home. This unusual legend reveals how Hutash accomplished the dangerous task of sending half of them to the land across the water-and how she saved some of the Chumash from drowning by turning them into dolphins. "Wood and debut illustrator Florczak offer a transcendent adaptation of a Native American tale, their work a shining example of economy and elegance of text, originality of interpretation and dazzling illustrative technique."-- Publishers Weekly
