'The Native American Story Book Volume 5 - Stories Of The American Indians For Children' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Aug 19, 2016

'The Native American Story Book Volume 5 - Stories Of The American Indians For Children' features new stories which have been selected for young readers while presenting children with a chance to explore Native American history. Contained within 196 pages in 6x9 format, Mullins brings history to life along with original art by award winning artist C.L. Hause. Most Native American tribes did not write down or record their history, so we have to find out about their past in other ways. They used games, myths, dance, and impersonation to teach the children of their history and ways of life. Their storytelling was filled with family, heritage and stories of the earth. It is through storytelling, that the rich history of the Native American tribes is alive and well today. It has been shared and preserved and still pays tribute to fallen heroes of the past. It is through these glimpses into the past, and these stories much like the ones that are contained in this book, that you can see what a proud heritage they possess and how in tune with the Earth Native Americans really are. Included in this collection are: The Story of the Land of Northern Lights, The Legend of the Bear Family, The Origin of Summer and Winter, The Story of the Buffalo-painted Lodges, The Story of the Camp of the Ghosts, Creation of the First Indians, The Story of the Little Burnt Face, Origin of the Sweat Lodge, Rabbit and the Moon Man, Ghost of the White Deer, Unktomi and the Arrowheads, The Story of the First Pine Trees, Raven and His Grandmother, The Story of the Snow Man, The Origin of Medicine, and many more. For further information, on the writing visit G.W. Mullins' web site at http://gwmullins.wix.com/officialsite. For information on the art of C.L. Hause visit his web site at http://clarencehause.wix.com/homepage G.W. Mullins is a Native American of Cherokee decent. He has been a published author for several years. He recently released book one in his From The Dead Of Night Series, the top selling title Daniel Is Waiting, which is available in print and eBook on Amazon.com, Kindle, Kobo, Google Book Store, Nook, Books-A-Million, Barnes and Noble and other book retailers. C.L. Hause is an abstract artist who possesses a Bachelor Of Arts Degree specializing in Studio Art. He was the winner of the 2013 Johnny Hart Memorial Award as well of several others. He has always been inspired by nature, primitive and Native American design. (more...)
