A GREAT READ FOR KIDS!

In 1891, the first buffalo was purchased for Golden Gate Park, Congress created the U.S. Courts of Appeals, the first woman was admitted to Yale University, American Express issued the first Travellers Checks, Thomas Edison patented the motion picture camera, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow published The Song of Hiawatha. It was also the year that Folk Lore and Legends of the North American Indianwas first published by J.B. Lippincott.

Folk Lore and Legends of the North American Indian is an exquisite compilation of North American Indian myths and legends as they existed in the late 1880s and early 1890s. These are the stories that were passed from mouth to mouth, teaching stories to help young Native Americans navigate through the uncertain journey of life that lay ahead. J.B. Lippincott gathered the stories from letters transported to him via the recently completed Transcontinental Pacific Railroad. These stories should not become just another page in the ever-increasing forest of the internet; they should not be accessible only with the use of electronic devices.

All Americans are invited, especially Native Americans, to keep a copy of this sliver of their history in their bookshelves for their children and their children's children to read and treasure for years to come.

This book has been especially republished to raise funds for the American Indian Education Fund, benefitting the education of Native Americans across the United States of America.

About the author (2009)

In 1836 J. B. Lippincott & Co., founded by Joshua Ballinger Lippincott, began business publishing Bibles and prayer books before expanding into history, biography, fiction, poetry, and gift books. The company later added almanacs, medicine and law, school textbooks, and dictionaries. In 1849, Lippincott acquired Grigg, Elliot & Co., a significant publisher and wholesaler whose origins dated back to printer and bookseller Benjamin and Jacob Johnson in 1792.
