Caduto and Bruchac use stories from various American Indian tribes as the basis for activities and lessons about the nighttime world. Written as a guide for teachers, outdoor education leaders, and other adults working with children in a nature setting, the guide gives detailed instructions for preparing, conducting, and evaluating a variety of activities that focus on the nocturnal habits of animals, on astronomy and nighttime weather, and on campfire activities, such as storytelling, dances, and games. Aspects of many American Indian tribal practices are woven throughout the text. The wealth of information and activity suggestions overcomes occasional poorly written passages (incomplete sentences, for example). Source notes are provided; a glossary and a brief bibliography section are appended. Karen Hutt

The stories themselves are very tellable. I have had sixth graders learn and tell these tales. The activities are broken into categories, such as the night sky or nocturnal animals. This is an excellent resource for anyone working with groups such as Scouts or nature centers, wishing to incorporate enjoyable activities and stories into their night-time programming.
As humans have done for eons before us, take this guidebook with you to your next campfire, and share the magic of stories spun by fireside.
