Captíkʷɬ t Sw̓ar̓ák̕xən, the Legend of Frog Mountain, as told by Sinixt elder Eva Orr (1910-2006), is the first book to be published in Snslxcin, the Interior Salish language of the Sinixt Peoples, a dialect on the verge of extinction.

Part of the language revitalization work of the Autonomous Sinixt, this story of Sinixt survival, embodied in a well-known Slocan Valley landmark, comes alive in vivid illustrations. Also included is an English translation and information for educators.
