G.W. Mullins Launches Folklore Hardback Book 'Supernatural Tales Of The Native American Indians'
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2017

Native American Mythology began long before the European settlers arrived on North American soil. Contrary to popular beliefs, there is more to Native American Folklore than stories of buffalo hunts, teepee living and animal stories. Hundreds of tribes throughout North American created a huge mythological system that has rivaled that of the Greeks. Since the beginning of time every civilization has presented its own collection of strange tales and folklore. The Native American Indians are no different. Many of their stories included giants, hideous creatures, ghosts, beings from the spirit world, witches and many others. The stories collected in this book represent some of the best to be found. Among the stories included are: Wakiash and the First Totem Pole, Two Ghostly Lovers, The Land of the Dead, The Double Faced Ghost, A Journey to the Skeleton House, The Skeleton Who Fell Down Piece By Piece, The Spirit Wife, The Transformed Grandmother, Blue Jay Visits Ghost Town, The Ghost Wife, The Flood, The Elk Spirit of Lost Lake, Ghost of the White Deer, The Resuscitation of the only Daughter, Heavy Collar and the Ghost Woman, Origin of the Medicine Man, The Medicine Grizzly Bear, The Ghosts' Buffalo, The Spirit Land, The Skin Shifting Old Woman, The Fatal Swing, The Simpleton's Wisdom, The Ghost Country, The Legend of the Maid of the Mist, Ghost Stallion, Song of the Ghost Dance, The Deserted Children, How the Worm Pipe Came to the Blackfoot, Tale of Coyote and the Origin of Death and many, many more.

New Extended Anniversary Hardback Of G.W. Mullins's 'Animal Tales Of The Native American Indians' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 20, 2017

Light Of The Moon Publishing has released this new book which features stories of the Native Americans with original art by award winning artist C.L. Hause. Contained in 168 pages, it is a huge collection of Native American history. The stories included in this book show Native American storytelling at its best. Many Native American tribes did not have written languages or recorded histories. They passed their heritage down through the art of storytelling. Though the tribes were different and came from different corners of North America, the stories were passed in the same manner from elders to children. Over the years many of these stories were lost due to the disappearance of tribes due to war and death. Animal tales presents a chance to revisit these lost pieces of history. The stories collected in this book are all animal based. And even though the tribes may vary in location or beliefs, deep within you will find a common thread. Respect for nature can be heard in stories from tribes from Canada to Florida. They speak of a rich history from their forgotten tribes. The stories of Native American Indians have always possessed some greater meaning. These stories are a heritage, but they will be known only as long as they are told. When someone ceases to tell a story, part of our cultural knowledge is gone. This book contains stories such as: How the Wildcat Caught the Gobbler, How the Terrapin Beat the Rabbit, The Raven, Why Rabbit Has A Short Tail, The Ballgame Between the Birds and the Animals, The Hunting of the Great Bear, Coyote and Porcupine, The Badger and the Bear, The White Faced Bear, Run, Rabbit, Run, The Bear And The Rabbit Hunt Buffalo, The Elk Spirit of Lost Lake, The Origin of the Thunderbird, Origin of the Buffalo and many, many more.
