Description : The mythology of the North America Indians is a cultural treasure trove, but many of these myths and legends have been hidden away in many old books and documents. So this vast body of wisdom has been out of reach of most people... until now. Through storytelling, the rich history of the Native American tribes is alive and well today. It has been shared and still pays tribute to fallen heroes of the past. It is through the 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. In this book there is a landscape of different histories and you are presented with a true look at their beliefs. Understand the Native American people a little better and understand where they have come from and what they can offer the world. By exploring these stories, you are offered a glimpse into an often forgotten past.
