A powerful native American tale of a young woman who stands up to, and defeats, the cruel North Wind.
Fran, who generously gave me a copy of her CD, (Travelling Tales Vol 1) accompanies this with a magical, hypnotic strumming of the autoharp (in the distinctive 3-beat rhythm of the native American) throughout, and there’s a four-line song that recurs too, etching its way into your memory.
And the hissed voice she gives the North Wind? Goosebumps!
Fran’s telling of Shingebiss is one of my all time top three!
