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.

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.
