DESCRIPTION

This book is a beautiful collection of the fascinating stories told by the indigenous peoples across the continent of North America. The exciting adventures of trickster figures like Glooscap, Raven and Coyote are combined here with classic legends of creation. These legends span the width of the continent with tales from the Ojibwa of the Great Lakes region to the Inuits of Alaska. Together, these carefully chosen tales show the sheer diversity of the First Nations of Canada and the United States but for all their differences, certain common themes weave through all the tribes' tales.

In accordance with their views of nature and spirit, they constantly appeal to these powers, at every step of their lives. In Native American Myths & Legends you can read about characters such as Old Man, Rabbit Boy, Blue Jay (the trickster bird), the Double-Faced Ghost, the Splinter-Foot Girl and Mondawmin, the Corn Spirit. You will also discover the meaning of the Potlatch Feast, the legend of the Great Turtle and the myth of the Bear Foster-Son. These legends span the width of the continent with tales from the Ojibwa of the Great Lakes region to the Inuits of Alaska.
