There are tales of daily life- creation stories- tales of tricksters and fools- spirits, shamans, and shapeshifters- animals- and heroes and heroines. The ethnic source and country of origin is provided for each tale, as are notes on the tale itself. Background on the geography, history, and cultures of the native peoples round out a book that is a perfect resource for educators and storytellers alike.
