Summary Legendary Hiawatha, son of the West Wind, ventures into a desolate land to battle an evil magician in this compelling episode from Longfellow's epic, The Song of Hiawatha. Action-packed drama combines with magic as the brave young hero slays serpents, evades ghosts, and finally confronts the mighty Megissogwon. Jeffrey Thompson's powerful blend of scratchboard and computer illustration enhances the magic of Longfellow's stirring poetry, drawing a new generation of children into this classic tale. An afterword by prominent Native American author Joseph Bruchac answers the question: Is this an authentic Native American legend?
