More than 160 tales from eighty tribal groups present a rich and lively panorama of the Native American mythic heritage.

From across the continent comes tales of creation and love; heroes and war; animals, tricksters, and the end of the world. In addition to mining the best folkloric sources of the nineteenth century, the editors have also included a broad selection of contemporary Native American voices.

“This fine, valuable new gathering of … tales is truly alive, mysterious, and wonderful—overflowing, that is, with wonder, mystery and life” (National Book Award Winner Peter Matthiessen). 

Accompanied by black-and-white drawings throughout, this collection will delight readers both young and old.
