Native American Legends of the Great Lakes and the Mississippi Valley
Selected and Edited by Katharine B. Judson
Introduced by Peter Iverson
"A welcome addition to the collection of American Indian myths and tales."—A. LaVonne Brown Ruoff, author of Literatures of the American Indian
"Not simply 'tales,' these stories form an Indian literature that was important on its own terms as well as in relation to American literature."—Peter Iverson, Arizona State University
Collected almost 100 years ago, these timeless tales represent the diversity and richness of American Indian cultures from around the Great Lakes, the Midwest, and the Mississippi River valley. They reveal much about the central beliefs and guiding principles of Winnebago, Ojibwa, Menominee, and other peoples and provide a window into their outlook and aspirations. As Katharine Judson wrote in her original preface, they express the longing to understand the why and how of life.
