MAGIC WEAVER OF RUGS : A TALE OF THE NAVAJO
York : Houghton, 1994
Navajo women go in search for help when their village is facing hunger
and cold. Spider Woman helps them by teaching them to weave on a loom she
constructs from large trees. The women weave a rug from all the colors
of the world . Because of their doubts, the rug is not perfect. Spider
Woman gets angry when she sees the rug and sends the women back to their
village without the rug. However, the women have learned to weave and teach
others in the village to weave rugs to keep the tribe warm. They trade
rugs for food and save the village.
