Review
  • In this fascinating book, Bruchac relays the importance of story within Native societies to entertain, teach lessons, and maintain the history of individual nations. Part cultural lesson, part history, and part autobiography, the book contains a wealth of information. Each chapter begins with an epigraph from a Native source; some chapters end with an annotated list of recommended reading. Each chapter also contains stories. Some of the tales are set off from the main text, but many more are woven into it–stories within stories within stories. Bruchac has included source notes for each selection as well as the epigraphs. This important volume includes a wealth of traditional stories and solid information.–S K Joiner, Brazoria County Library System, Angleton, TX --S K Joiner (Reviewed July 1, 2003) (School Library Journal, vol 49, issue 7, p155)
