We have some native roots and my grandmother found this book fascinating. I bought her several Iroquois books from Amazon as a Christmas gift and she loved them all. She keeps calling me to tell me about them.

I purchased this book because I was writing a novel about the Native Americans who lived in the Finger Lake region f New York State. The book was helpful as far as gaining some insights into the life styles of these people. I really was not reading this book for its entertainment value.

Tehnetoren's `Legends of the Iroquois was devised to instruct Indian school children, and collects some favorite tales for curriculum purposes. Some of the character names clearly denote important historical encounters and events. When I went exploring the idea of the `stone' giants, I found information about American giants and armor skin that repelled stone tipped weapons. There's far more behind that story than what is available to the casual observer.

The assortment of symbols from Indian story telling found in this book seems to draw from various Eastern and Mid-western pictures/pictoglyphs and forms a unit on telling a story as a `visual learner`. I bought my copy from a market-place text book vender, and the student notes in the margin were puzzling around the story of two brothers who go out to hunt, and wind up inside the earth confronting a gigantic ferocious beast (a giant mouse.)

Who hasn't heard:

"the world will build a path to your door, if you build a better mouse trap."

And to the early American, other metaphorically gigantic creatures (because they did and do defy eradication) also included flying insects. If you've never watched the family film, `Mouse Hunt', then you've deprived yourself the laughter of being confronted with the absurdity and the irony of just how un-assailable is the mighty midget tyrannosaurus mouse. (O.K. I didn't have the patience to sit through all of it but it was recommended by the neighbor's kids who played it over and over.)
