One Cold Night

Story Description

Reminiscent of Native American legend, One Cold Night glows with the magic of coming of winter.

The cloud coyotes howled in the moonlight and Snow Woman comes to put the world to rest for winter. She frosts the fields, stills the stream, and brushes the last brittle leaves from the trees. Last of all, she sends one small reluctant bear scampering off to his warm winter den. Then, having tucked each creature in, Snow Woman blankets the earth in white.
