Why Aspens Tremble by Japeth
I remember the story that you told me about Aspens. All the plants and animals respected Napi very much. Whenever he went through the woods all of the trees would bow down to him, partly out of fear and partly out of respect. One day Aspens got together and decided Napi wasn’t important, so they agreed that they would not bow down for him, next time he was around. True for their word, they just stood up tall. Well of course, Napi didn’t like this. In a tantrum he started throwing lightning bolts, almost scaring the leaves right off their branches. To this very day the Aspens are so scared every time they hear someone walking in the woods, they tremble their leaves in fear that it might be Napi.
