Indian Legends of the Pacific Northwest
This collection of more than one hundred tribal tales, culled from the oral tradition of the Indians of Washington and Oregon, presents the Indians' own stories, told for generations around their fires, of the mountains, lakes, and rivers, and of the creation of the world and the heavens above. Each group of stories is prefaced by a brief factual account of Indian beliefs and of storytelling customs. Indian Legends of the Pacific Northwest is a treasure, still in print after fifty years.

when I lived in madris oregon back in 1979 there was a story going around at halloween about a man that would come to warm springs and sit on a bar stool...well people started noticing that the man was not fully man...that when they looked down where his feet where propped on the rungs of the bar stool...that he had hoofs like a deer instead of feet or shoes.I am american but at that time all my friends were warm springs indians and swore about this story..they actuaully looked scared when they told me this...real or fake...thats what I wanna know.
I loved its fantastic legends, and learned about the tribal legends especially about the cold ones!!! reminds me of twilight saga!!!
