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.
