"A guidebook to the mythologies of the whole continent."--The New York Times Book Review
"Presents a systematic view of the entire corpus of North American mythology. Since no such overarching descriptive work has appeared in nearly seventy years, Bierhorst's book is timely, adding breadth to the knowledge of Native American narrative."--American Anthropologist
