A comprehensive compendium of Chorkeet myths, together with a history of the people, first published in 1902 by the bureau of American Ethnology. With 22 illustrations. These myths (including versions of the Deluge and of the Tortoise and the Hare) will remind you of Aesop, the Uncle Remus/Brer Rabbit Stories, Mother West Wind and other stories by Bugess, as well as Kipling's Just So Stories. According to Wikipedia: "James Mooney (February 10, 1861 – December 22, 1921) was an American ethnographer who lived for several years among the Cherokee. He did major studies of Southeastern Indians, as well as those on the Great Plains.[1] His most notable works were his ethnographic studies of the Ghost Dance after Sitting Bull's death in 1890, a widespread 19th-century religious movement among various Native American culture groups, and the Cherokee: The Sacred Formulas of the Cherokees (1891), and Myths of the Cherokee (1900), all published by the US Bureau of American Ethnology. Artifacts from Mooney are in the collections of the Department of Anthropology, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution and the Department of Anthropology, Field Museum of Natural History. Papers and photographs from Mooney are in the collections of the National Anthropological Archives, Department of Anthropology, Smithsonian Institution
