A wonderful, rhythmic North American Indian folk tale... As the leaves fall from the trees and the wind blows colder, the animals wish they had fire to keep them warm.

But only the Sky People living high in the mountains have fire, and they guard it jealously.

Rabbit has a plan, however: he makes a special resin-covered headdress, tricks the Sky People and steals some fire.

All the animals help him in an exciting race to escape capture, and each is marked in some way by the stolen fire.

Then Deer manages to hide the precious fire in the woods, so it can be theirs forever - but once it's hidden, how will they get it back?
