Pale Moon: Tales of the American Indians

Front Cover
John Long
ICS Books, 1995 - Social Science - 152 pages
"The American Indians loved to share stories around the campfire, both as a major form of entertainment and as the means for passing on tribal history, culture and beliefs. The modern reader has found their ageless creations myths, legends, war ceremonies, trickster and hero tales no less enchanting than those who first told and heard them centuries ago. John Long and his researchers reviewed over one hundred renowned anthologies in compiling Pale Moon, and the result is a unique collection grounded in the bedrock of ancient culture, pulsating with nature's indomitable energy and the soul's struggle with the Great Mystery. The themes are as old as fire itself and are part of mankind's heritage--literary, ethnic, folkloric. The telling of them maks living myths."-- From Amazon.ca.
