At the end of the first day, First Woman decided the laws should be written across the sky for all the people to see. With her blanket full of jewels, she starts carefully placing gleaming stars in the night sky. The famous trickster Coyote offers to help, but when he becomes impatient with the task, his "solution" ends up obscuring all of First Woman's hard work. This elegant retelling of the Navajo story explaining the mysteries of the stars is sure to delight.
