Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A good addition to folklore collections in many libraries." —Booklist

"If you are a storyteller, or enjoy tales about Native Americans, then this book belongs in your library." —Science and Children

"Kahionhes continues to amaze with his outpouring of pencil sketches and paintings. His sketches are always as dynamic and accurate as his viewpoints are refreshing. His characters share the subtle Indian humor that is so difficult to show." —Northeast Indian Quarterly

Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
This 160-page book presents a rich collection of twenty-five myths from many North American tribes. The stories, which are superbly told by Abenaki storyteller Bruchac and magically illustrated by Mohawk artist John Kahionhes Fadden, originate from Cherokee, Yurok, Zuni, Sioux, and other Native American cultures. Readers of all ages will enjoy this outstanding resource, which fosters an appreciation for the natural world.
