Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Illustrations, simple literary structure, and logical sequence make for enlightening and entertaining reading." —-Journal of the West"The legends trace the origin myths and development of the Pima, and continue by presenting some Piman folk heroes such as Coyote and Roadrunner. Those who like to keep up on the southwestern folk hero (or anti-hero) Coyote will discover a number of delightful tales of his prowess." —Ethnohistory
