I bought this to expand our homeschool study of early America. My 8- and 10-yr olds enjoyed reading this a lot...they were always happy to hear we'd be looking at another story that day. The book divides into geographical sections, with stories from different regional tribes/traditions in each section. Each region and tribe are introduced with historical notes/contexts with help "warm up" the reader and add to the appreciation of the story that follows. The stories cover divergent themes, but also feature different narratives on similar themes, so that the reader might compare and contrast. The artwork is simply gorgeous. In sum, I am very pleased that we added this book to our family library.

I bought this for my 3 girls to read at bedtime and they love it. Each story is only a couple pages long so it works well to read before bed because if you are like me and don't often have time for long stories especially on school nights these give you a nice short story to read with your kids before bed. And if you have more time you can always choose more than one story. My kids (3,6,and 9)have all loved all the stories so far.

This collection of Native American legends is grouped into seven regions of North America. Each region has 3-4 legends. Introduction of each region tells a story on its own, explaining the region and what it was good for to harvest or develop. It mentions main Native American groups in each region and connects all aspects of their living with the legends presented in this book.

Each story comes from a different tribe and has a short introduction explaining what the story conveys and the important lessons it teaches.

Illustrations are colorful and well-done, reflecting the story narrative beautifully.

It is written in a simple prose, which should be understandable to most of the young readers.

If you enjoy folklore in general, then you most likely will like this book.

Can you imagine a world without stories? It is true that a long time ago "there were no stories." It was just plain, old boring sitting around without having anyone tell a funny tale, a fanciful one or better yet, one that made the listeners excited and motivated. Gaqka (Crow) was a Seneca Indian boy who was an orphan that no one would pay any attention to because he was a slovenly looking thing. Without anyone to take care of him, what could they expect? One day when he was out hunting he had an amazing experience. A great stone began to talk to him and told him a story. He listened to the stone's instructions and at the end the stone said "Da neho," or "I have spoken."

Gaqka began to tell these tales to his people who gave him small treasures in exchange. He "continued to return to the great stone for more tales to share with his people each night." Eventually he became a well-respected member of his tribe and his name was changed to "Hage-ota, the storyteller." And that is how stories began. In this book you will travel the northeast, the southeast, Great Plains, the southwest, California, the northwest and to the far north listening to the legends of our Native Peoples. The people who speak in this book are the Seneca, the Lenape, the Wampanoag, the Seminole, the Creek, the Choctaw, the Cheyenne, the Lakota, the Blackfeet, the Pawnee, the Hopi, the Navajo, the Isleta Pueblo, the Maidu, the Miwok, the Pomo, the Wiyot, the Salish, the Yakama, the Wasco, the Aluutiq, the Inuit and the Koyukon Alhabascan.

If this marvelous book were expanded into a lengthy series, it would be well received by anyone who has taken a peek inside these pages. Each grouping of stories is introduced by a brief cultural history of tribes and a description of the topography of the land. Each story has a brief introduction. For example, one introduction read, "Pueblo tradition says that there must be balance in all things. Earth and sky are in balance, as are the seasons. So, too, as this tale explains, are darkness and light." The very appealing folk art is scattered throughout the text. This is a magnificent collection that would be welcome on any homeschool or classroom shelf. Da neho!
The whole family enjoys this book. Great stories and illustrations.
