This comprehensive collection of Native American folklore draws on a unique oral tradition, illuminating for students the very roots of Native American culture. Gathered from numerous tribes―Seneca, Hopi, Navaho, Creek, Cheyenne, Cherokee, and Blackfoot―these thirty-six stories, passed down through generations, are narrated by Dee Brown as they might be told around a campfire today.

With a new preface written by the author especially for this edition and attractive line illustrations by Native American Louis Mofsie, this unique is essential reading for a new generation of students interested in Native American culture and history, mythology and folklore, and cultural history.
