Synopses & Reviews
"A wonderful compilation that would make a fine supplement to an early American literature class."--Scarlett Saavedra, Tooadega College
"Entices readers to explore the complex fabric of North American Indian tales and ritual. While numerous other references treat Native American mythology, none offer the coverage found in this volume....Well researched, drawing from scholarly sources....Each entry includes generous cross references and bibliogrophic citations. An excellent tribal index refers readers to both main entries and to the work's extensive bibliography, which invites readers to pursue the research further."--Library Journal
Includes bibliographical references (p. 363-410) and index.
