    I love WIGWAMS!!

    When I heard there was a book on fairy tells as told by the Sioux I instantly knew I had to purchase this book. Coming from American Indian background I could relate to some of the stories, the Buffalo hunt had to be one of the best. I'd tell you a little bit more about them but then I'd be ruining the good ones. I know you'll love this book as much as I have and if you enjoyed this book, you'll definately love reading my related titles. Check 'em out!!
