This collection gathers one-hundred-sixty tales from eighty tribal groups to offer a rich and lively panorama of the Native American mythic heritage.  From all across the continent come tales of creation, love, of heroes and war, of animals, tricksters, and the end of the world. Alfonso Ortiz, an eminent anthropologist, and Richard Erdoes, an artist and master storyteller, have added a broad selection of contemporary Indian voices to the best folkloric sources of the nineteenth century to make this the most comprehensive and authentic volume of American Indian myths available anywhere.

"In this book Richard Erdoes and Alfonso Ortiz have brought together what is probably the most comprehensive and diverse collection of American Indian legends ever compiled. It is a worthy and welcome addition to the literature of our native peoples."--Dee Brown
