The Storytelling Stone: Traditional Native American Myths and Talesby Susan Feldmann
Creation and death, the wily trickster, wolves, magic, and passion -- these are part of a rich heritage of Native American mythology and folktales. From tribes that vanished long ago, as well as from great tribes like the Ojibwa and Zuni that proudly remain, here are the powerful ancient beliefs with which North American tribal societies bring order to the universe and understanding to the heart.
Editor Susan Feldmann has assembled this introductory anthology of oral literature around themes that allow comparison of the many ways different tribes explained similar concepts. The result is a magnificent journey into the Native American cosmos and a chance for us to experience everything from the beginning of time to the passage through death with the first people of our land.
