Two Navajo women leave their family camp in search of aid for their starving families. It is Spider Woman whom they meet and who shows them how to weave, pulling colors from their natural world to dye wool sheared from sheep. This story, told in beautiful prose and illustrated with powerful paintings, provides a dramatic explanation of the origin of Navajo rugs.
