Book Cloudwalker by Roy Henry Vickers and Robert Budd.
On British Columbia's Northwest Coast lies the Sacred Headwaters—the source of three of the province's largest salmon-bearing rivers. These rivers support life for all creatures in the area. But what gave life to the rivers themselves?
Cloudwalker tells the ancient story of a strong young Gitxsan hunter intent on catching a group of swans with his bare hands. He is carried away by the bird's powerful wings and dropped on the clouds. With only a cedar box of water he wanders growing weaker stumbling and spilling the contents. When he finally returns to earth he discovers lakes and rivers where there were none before.
