In this collection of almost sixty tales, Indians themselves--Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, Creeks, Seminoles, and others--tell us about their beliefs, their traditions, and their history, in myths and legends that cover the classic themes of world mythology. Most of the stories were recorded in the late nineteenth century, at a time when Indian myth-keepers who remembered the tribal tales were still alive. Notes and introductory comments throughout the book provide background information for the stories. Editors Virginia Pounds Brown and Laurella Owens bring these stories together for the first time in one volume. This collection makes enjoyable and significant reading for adults as well as young people.
