    Shake away, this pumpkin is ripe!

    I love this book! It is an excellent source of traditional Native American poetry from various tribes, such as the Navajo and the Nez Percé. I don't know if some of the poetry was intended to be vulgar or not, but at any rate, it was very entertaining. I always love a good coyote story too.
