Being Australian I've vaguely heard of these stories in US soaps or sometimes the odd mention in US Films so I decided to look them up and glad I did.
This book has plenty of stories including characters called Coyote, Rabbit Boy and so on from various Native American backgrounds. The stories are humorous and include answers to why the Sun and Moon appear at different times (figuratively) to how the Seven Giants got their name. There are stories that show Native-Americans are unabashed about discussing sex and sexual urges which were hilariously outrageous.
Although I'd often begrudge paying anything over $5.00 for an ebook considering the complete lack of labour in producing and downloading one I won't reduce the rating for the $9.99 price because to me it is such a good book.

Really interesting collection of Native American myths. Material in appendix summarizing the groups is worth the price all by itself.Published 7 days ago by Amazon Customer
I bought this book to use with my senior mythology class. Many of the short stories are very interesting but not appropriate even for seniors. I read the book but not at school!Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer

Definitely more than shelf wear, for a new book. Pages are yellowed a if they had been previously looked through. Read morePublished on July 11, 2014 by Craig Sugarman
I started telling stories recently and I love this book. Although I won't use many of these stories they show what can be done and why stories are magical.Published on April 2, 2014 by Jon W. Florey
