From Inuit and Aleut to Iroquois, Lakota, and Navajo, this magnificent anthology acquaints readers with the untrammeled breadth and power of the spoken literatures of North America's native peoples. It is the first collection to present its selections in their full cultural context, for each of its stories, songs, prayers, and orations is accompanied by extensive translators' notes that tell us how it was told or sung and what it meant to its narrator.
"A book to savor slowly, one startling idea at a time...The largess of accumulated wisdom, good sense, and grappling intelligence contained within its pages offers the readers an ample reward."--Michael Dorris, Minneapolis Star Tribune
