Raven Brings the Light is one of the finalists for the First Nation Communities Read 2014–15 selection. Raven Brings the Light is a 48-page picture book that retells the classic Northwest Coast traditional story about the origin of daylight and its importance to the First Nations of the Northwest Coast. Renowned visual artist Roy Henry Vickers has taken the creation story he first heard from Chester Bolton, Tsimshian Chief of the Ravens, from the village of Kitkatla around 1975 and by adding 20 colour paintings has created a magnificent rendering of the story.
The Elders Are Watching, 5th edition, reflects collaboration between poet David Bouchard and artist Roy Henry Vickers. First released in 1990, this combination of poetic art explores the theme of First Nations and their relationship to the environment. Twenty-five evocative, colour images drawn by Vickers are combined with four-line verses written by Bouchard. Together the Tsimshian artist and the British Columbian teacher gently focus the reader's attention to the importance of the environment and the teachings of the elders.
