Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Traditional stories from 60 native cultures of North America are prefaced by brief headnotes. Sources include government documents, periodicals, histories, and field research (some conducted by Clark). Familiar (Iroquois, Abenaki, Cherokee, Cheyenne) and rarely anthologized (Wasco, Pomo, Yakut, Sanpoil) stories contain archetypical symbols of universal human experience but are arranged regionally instead of thematically, as in Richard Erdoes and Alfonso Ortiz's American Indian Myths and Legends ( LJ 11/15/84). Native American cultures value an end to isolation and the individuals's return to family and tribe, but there are some striking analogs to Western myths; one Pima story neatly parallels the Noah's ark tale. Curiosities include "She-Who-Changeth" for the more common "Changing Woman," gender-exclusive language (" . . . man first appeared . . . "), and a claim that Navajos live today in prosperity.

This book is very good reading. All the stories are short and told in the original style. It is a must read for anyone interested in Native American History and Culture. This should be required reading for Native American Youth.

This book was a great treasure I found online while shopping for my dad for Christmas, he loves everything to do with Native American culture since it is a part of bloodline and family history. The book arrived yesterday and I was very impressed! The stories and facts inside were just breathe-taking! There is so much great information with the stories, pictures, and facts. I suggest this to anyone!

In attempting to understand humankind, I find it instructive to study the religions, legends, and myths of people around the world. This provides a basis upon which to then study their more formal cultural products: their language, art, literature, and science. This book provides a look into the mind-worlds that developed among the original inhabitants of this part or the world. I highly recommend it as an adventure of exploration into an oft-forgotten frontier.

If you are looking for legends of the American Indians, this is a fine start. There are many legends, and there are many different tribes, each with their own version of the legend. I wonder how many I will find about the "Big Dipper" (or Ursa Major).?
