Description

Learn about the rich history of North America through the legends and tales of those who inhabited the land first in Voices of the Winds.

This wonderfully appealing anthology gathers more than 130 Native American legends, many told to the authors by elder storytellers and
tribal historians. The legends feature a broad array of mythical figures, such as Thunderbird, Coyote, and Raven, as well as human-like characters “The
Girl Who Married the Moon” and “Two Brothers Who Became Stars.”

Organized by region—with tales from the Northwest, Southwest, Great Plains, Southeast, and Northeast—the legends are drawn from many tribes, including the Wasco, Aleut, Apache, Yosemite, Cheyenne, Sioux, Hopi, Navajo, Chippewa, Cherokee and others, and are introduced by an informative headnote, accompanied by a variety of evocative line-art drawings. The stories include:

  • The Bridge of the Gods, Wasco
  • Raven’s Great Adventure, Alaska
  • Song of the Horses, Navaho
  • Origin of Fire, Jicarilla-Apache
  • The Corn Ceremony, Hidatsa
  • The Great Serpent and the Great Flood, Chippewa-Ojibwa
  • The Origin of Earth, Tuskegee
  • The Legend of the Bear Family, Penobscot
  • The Origin of the Iroquois Nations, Iroquois

Get to know the first peoples of North America through these stories from their rich oral traditions.
