I am not familiar with Native American folktales and that was what originally attracted me to this book. The author does point out that this story is a mixture of tales re-spun in this story. The illustration of the Windigo is captivating in its style and the presence it gives off. It seems more of a magical being than scary. Even the necklace still makes me think of a medicine man instead of a monster. Then I noticed the eyes. Dark empty holes. Beautiful tale.
