Includes retellings of six Tewa Indian legends and a brief biographical section about the author, who is a noted Native American artist.

She has selected six of the most memorable Santa Clara tribal stories she heard as a child for her book Old Father Story Teller.

This book reveals the artist at her best and will delight old and young alike.
