Creation and death, the wily trickster, wolves,  magic, and passion -- these are part of a rich  heritage of Native American mythology and folktales.  From tribes that vanished long ago, as well as  from great tribes like the Ojibwa and Zuni that  proudly remain, here are the powerful ancient beliefs  with which North American tribal societies bring  order to the universe and understanding to the  heart.



Editor Susan Feldmann has  assembled this introductory anthology of oral  literature around themes that allow comparison of the many  ways different tribes explained similar concepts.  The result is a magnificent journey into the  Native American cosmos and a chance for us to  experience everything from the beginning of time to the  passage through death with the first people of our  land.
