From creation myths to epic legends of heroes and gods, the traditional stories of America's indigenous peoples show a remarkable diversity from tribe to tribe, even as certain common themes emerge in tales of the wily Coyote, the crafty Raven, the powerful Thunderbirds, the shrewd Manabozho, the heroic Glooscap, and the trickster Wiske-djak. This beautifully illustrated book gathers more than 50 of these myths and legends from nations across the continent—including the Algonquin, Apache, Blackfoot, Inuit, Kwakiutl, Miwok, Ojibwa, Tlingit, and Zuni—with ethnographic photographs by Edward S. Curtis and period artwork in color.
