    Enjoyed this work!

    I love Native American folklore and myths and I found this ebook touched on some tribes I knew very little about. It was an uplifting and interesting journey. I recommend it -- definitely. I also loved the illustrations!

    Not a book of tales

    If you are looking for a book of Native American myths and folklore that reads like a book of fairy tales, this is not it. That's what I was looking for, and the title, the phrase "retold by" and the blurb all seemed to suggest that's what I was getting. Instead, I got a rather boring discussion ABOUT Native American folklore. It reads like a High School student's report, generally heading in the right direction, but with an occasional sentence that makes you stop and say, "wait, what?" You can learn some of the tales this way, but you wouldn't be able to tell them to anyone else (in the great Native American tradition of verbal storytelling) without a lot of your own embellishment. At least it was only $1.

    Disappointing at best~

    Disappointing at best, the author drones on and on giving basic known facts. At times it seems pointless for her to continue but, she does anyway. At other times, she appeared to "get lost"~ I couldn't force myself beyond the 3rd page, but I did browse the remaining pages. I have yet to figure out why I thought it would improve~
