Why do the leaves change color?

We began to illustrate a Huron legend explaining why the leaves change color for our books!


In the story, the bear follows a deer across a rainbow into the sky before being killed by the deer.

In the legend, the blood from the bear falls from the sky and onto the trees.  A little gory!
