This book is a beautifully presented collection of the fascinating stories told by the indigenous peoples across the continent of North America. The exciting adventures of trickster figures like Glooscap, Raven and Coyote are combined here with classic legends of creation. These legends span the width of the continent with tales from the Ojibwa of the GreatLakes region to the Inuits of Alaska. Together, these carefully chosen tales show the sheer diversity of the First Nations of Canada and the United States but for all their difference certain common themes weave through all the tribes' tales.
