Overview

"An engaging and informative book. It is a charming narrative, as accessible to twelve-year-olds as to us ancients. For one realizes soon enough that the authors know exactly what they are doing: telling the truth about the archeology and the traditions of Louisiana Indians." Walker Percy

Louisiana Indian Tales vividly recreates the struggles and triumphs of the state's first inhabitants. Dating back to 10,000 b.c. when the Paleo-Indians occupied the area and huge woolly mammoths and mastodons roamed the land, these poignant stories are based on archaeological evidence and historical knowledge traced through modern-day findings. As archaeologist Dr. Ben Dominique and his young friends Richard and Rob soon discover while on an expedition in the first story, Louisiana is a state rich in Indian culture. Together the trio unearth the proud, industrious, and resourceful life-styles of the many cultures that contributed to this state's fascinating history. The tales in this collection for young readers focus on many tribes from around the state-the Tchefuncte, Choctaw, Chitimacha, Caddo, Houma, and Bayougoula.

A collection of old and new legends about the Louisiana Indians, including "The City of the Sun," "Dark Moon," and "The Waters of Life."
