Snow Eyes - Stephanie A. Smith Just reread this old favorite of mine. Snow-Eyes is the daughter of a carpenter and a demigoddess, more or less. What I love about this book is the combination of the down-to-earth and the mystical; the social structure of the Kields, the farming and carpentry and cooking and cleaning, the mythology and the hints at more, the focus on family and family frailties. The social structure is egalitarian, no gender roles assigned: nothing is made of this, it's just background.

Another fantasy novel from the 80s where the dark-skinned protagonist is shown on the cover as a white woman.
