This collection of short stories is based on traditional values important to us all—respect, cooperation, and kindness.

Seal shows us why we should not let fear of failing stop us from trying new things. Hummingbird helps us appreciate the beauty in our world. Kingfisher teaches us how to believe in ourselves. Coho learns the rewards of not giving up. Discover why a river's spirit stones are important to Salmon, why we should listen carefully to the message in Wolf's cry, and why Orca tries to turn rocks into grains of sand.
