Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A unique collection of more than one hundred Native American tales — spanning several centuries and the North American continent — makes a wonderful companion to a bestselling classic

The authors of the magnificent American Indian Myths and Legends have combined their talents as eminent anthropologist and master storyteller/artist to produce a rich and ribald sequel featuring the myriad tricksters of Southwestern and other Native American oral traditions.

From the rascally and irascible Coyote, master thief and insatiable lover of the Southwest, to Iktomi the shapeshifting Lakota spiderman; from Veeho, the Cheyenne daredevil, to Glooscap of the Passamaquoddy; here, in one volume are over one hundred tales from sixty tribes, many recorded from living storytellers. American Indian Trickster Tales — with over 150 lively and characteristic illustrations can be read aloud and enjoyed by readers of every age, and will entrance folklorists, anthropologists, lovers of Native American literature, and fans of both Joseph Campbell and the Brothers Grimm alike.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [284]-293) and index.
