From the Back Cover

These collected myths and tales of the Indians of the Pacific Northwest - the Klamath, Nez Perce, Tillamook, Modoc, Shastan, Chinook, Flathead, Clatsop, and other tribes - were first published in 1910. Here are their stories concerning the creation of the universe, the theft of fire and daylight, the death and rebirth of salmon, and, especially, the formation of such geographical features as The Dalles, the Columbia River, the Yukon River, and Mounts Shasta, Hood, Rainier, Baker, and Adams. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This is a useful book if one is doing a geographic search for American Indian Tribal stories. Living in the U.S. Northwest, I researched myths and legends of the American Indian Tribes in the area. My focus was learning more about the fundamental of the close relationship of Northwest topography, geology, botany, and ecology to American Indian Tribal observations that became translated into guidelines for living their lives. In simple words, my premise is that you have to know about the tribe's environment to understand their legends. The stories documented in this book go a long way toward that sort of understanding for me. Plus it's simply a "good read".

Being from the NW., can relate to the story. Have been aware of many of these stories for quite sometime. Some have been told to me by my friends of the Yakama Nation.

Would like to get more on the legends and meanings of the myths in the book. It included some myths and legends I had not heard of.
