Acerca de


The anthology contains legends and stories from many Native American tribes and nations - Mohawk, Sioux, Cree, Nez Perce, Yakima, Cherokee, Zuni, to name but a few - collected from both traditional and contemporary sources. These inspirational tales follow the path of life - from creation and birth, through adolescence, family relationships, love and marriage, death and renewal. Words recounted by respected storytellers reveal a unique approach to the world, as well as a desire to pass along the knowledge necessary to lead a good life. Taken as a whole, the stories reveal an innate power to entertain, to instruct, to bind people together into a healing community, and to provide an identity and a unifying vision.
These stories are richly illustrated with art - paintings, sculpture, drawings - created by modern Native American artists, and historically significant artifacts. Their work showcases the enduring spirit of Native American peoples who have found ways to survive and to continue telling their stories, revealing who they are for future generations. Among the artists included are Jaune Quick-To-See-Smith, George Longfish, Emmi Whitehorse, and Fred Kabotie.

From School Library Journal:

YA. This book is a feast for the eye, mind, and soul. The 125 illustrations include drawings, paintings, and sculptures by modern Native American artists from different tribes, as well as important artifacts. An art piece does not illustrate a story, but it enhances the understanding of the story. In fact, the illustrations and the stories stand independently, yet blend imperceptibly. The 80 tales are from traditional and modern tellers of different tribes, and are arranged in life-cycle order: creation, adolescence, family, marriage, children and community, old age and elder wisdom, and death. Explanatory notes at the beginning of each cycle add immensely to the knowledge about tribal life during those years. The stories are rich, varied, and complex: lighthearted and playful; painfully searing; and full of poetry. Coyote, the trickster, is often a major character, as are Raven, Fox, and Man. Interrelationships among all forms of life are as central to these tales as in Native American traditions and beliefs; and, interrelationships within the tribal community are vital. Life-cycle events are portrayed realistically, or symbolically. Instructions for living are woven subtly into the fabric of the stories. This book is not for browsing. It belongs in established collections of Native American folklore, and is for YAs who read tales of other cultures with eagerness, openness, and respect.?Judy Sokoll, formerly at Fairfax County Public Library,
