Doctor Coyote: A Native American Aesop's Fables
Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books, 1996 - Aesop's fables - 48 pages
When the Spaniards came to the New World, they brought a copy of Aesop's fables. Aztec scribes translated the book into their own language and made Coyote, a central figure in Native American folktales, the main character. John Bierhorst, a renowned translator of Native American literature, retells these stories, never before published in English. Wendy Watson's evocative illustrations capture the lively spirit of Coyote's adventures. Full color.
