Let’s Tell Legends and Stories: Aimee and the Mermaid

On this episode of Let’s Tell Legends and Stories, Annie Conger narrates the story “Aimee and the Mermaid.”

Aimee goes to the Kotzebue Lagoon hoping to catch some white fish for her family, which is suffering through a year of poor hunting and fishing. Instead, her net catches something much more dangerous.
