The legends and myths of the Native American tribes-the Navajo, Cherokee, Lakota, Chippewa, Iroquois, Abenaki, and many more-offer a rich tapestry of spirituality, folk beliefs, communal tribal memory, and natural history, where everything in nature is considered to be animated by a divine spirit. Placed within a context of history, archaeology, and culture, this compelling book is the reader's passport to a wide, glittering world of natural beauty, magical occurrences, and tribal lore.
