American Indian Myths and Legends by Richard Erdoes and Alfonso Ortiz
Gathering 160 tales from 80 tribal groups to offer a rich and lively panorama of the Native American mythic heritage. 100 drawings.
Very short pieces describing the myths and legends of various native american peoples. Some of these tales were recounted orally in the early 1900s and transcribed -- lucky for us. It's interesting to note the similarities between the myths of the different tribes and our own culture, whatever that may be.
