Description : This collection of stories represents the origin, myths and legends of American Indians from over 15 major tribes and 48 states of the U.S.A. These timeless tales tell of the Native American's sacred beliefs passed down from generation to generation. "The American Indian was a natural storyteller. Seeing, as he did, an omen in every shifting shade of the clouds, a sign in the changing leaf, a token of beauty or ugliness in different places in the wildwood, he knew no rock nor river, lake nor mountain, valley nor hillside that did not speak of some attraction, some vision of race, some deed of valor, incident of love or remembrance of wrong. These memories lived in stories that were told and retold to each succeeding generation, from time immemorial." - Johanna R. M. Lyback. INDIAN LEGENDS was originally published in 1925 by Lyons and Carnahan and reprinted by Tipi Press of St. Joseph's Indian School in its original form in hopes of keeping wonderful myths and legends of the American Indian alive for generations to come. The 279-page book features over 100 illustrations. Available from Tipi Press, St. Joseph's Indian School, Chamberlain, SD 57326; 605-734-3300; FAX: 605-734-3480.
