Synopsis:

Coyote encounters Rabbit, Fawn's Stars, Crow, Snake, Skunk Woman, and Horned Toad in these 6 delightful, English-language adaptations of traditional Navajo Coyote stories collected by anthropologist William Morgan and translated by him and linguist Robert W. Young. Adapter Hildegard Thompson intended these renderings "to provide Navajo children, who are learning to read, with materials familiar to them", and the English words are well within a selected vocabulary level for beginning readers. First published by the Bureau of Indian Affairs in a bilingual edition with illustrations by Andrew Tsihnahjinne, this new, English-only edition has charming illustrations by Santa Fe artist Jenny Lind.

"Because of its cultural authenticity... a useful addition to folktale collections". — Children's Book Review Service

"Among the best multicultural books". — Chicago Tribune
