From the Publisher
“We have nothing more universal than our folk myths, and in this book Richard Erdoes and Alfonso Ortiz have brought together what is probably the most comprehensive and diverse collection of American Indian Legends ever compiled. It is a worthy and welcomed addition to the literature of our native peoples”
—Dee Brown
 
“This fine, valuable new gathering of Turtle Island tales is truly alive, mysterious, and wonderful—overflowing, that is, with wonder, mystery and life.”
—Peter Matthiessen

    THIS IS THE BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ IN MY WHOLE LIFE!!

    I LOVE THIS BOOK LIKE CRAZY. :) I'VE READ IT, LIKE A MILLION TIMES ALREADY. I LOVE ALL THE STORIES IN IT. SOME OF THEM WERE SO FUNNY, THAT THEY MADE ME CRY. :) I PLAN TO READ MOST OF THE STORIES IN THIS BOOK TO MY FUTURE CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, AND GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN SOMEDAY. BUT WARNING TO ALL : THE STORY ENTITLED "COYOTE'S STRAWBERRY" IS PROBABLY NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN AND THERE MAY BE A COUPLE MORE IN THERE THAT ARE MORE ADULT-CONTENT-ORIENTED, BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER THE EXACT ONES RIGHT NOW. IF YOU LIKE READING BEDTIME STORIES TO YOUR CHILDREN, AND/OR LIKE STORIES OR ANYTHING THAT'S AMERICAN-INDIAN ORIENTED, PERIOD, THEN I KNOW YOU'LL LOVE AND ENJOY THIS BOOK JUST AS MUCH AS I DO. A GREAT TRAVEL BOOK AS WELL. I NEVER LEAVE ANYWHERE WITHOUT IT. :) I HOPE THERE'S A SEQUEL BOOK OR A FOLLOW UP TO THIS BOOK.

    This is a Spactacular book!!

    This book is divided into sections such as love stories, stories of creation, stories of spirits and ghosts of the dead, coyote stories and many more. The tribe from which the legend originated is also stated along with who told it and when. I absolutely enjoyed this book and have read it over and over again. This truly tops all the other Native American Myth and Legend books!!!!!!
