In this reprint of a classic collection of 57 tales, Indians themselves—Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, Creeks, Seminoles and others—tell about their beliefs, their traditions, and their history in myths and legends that cover the themes of world mythology. Most of the stories were recorded in the late 19th century, at a time when Indian myth-keepers who remembered the tribal tales were still alive. Notes and introductory comments throughout the book provide background information for the stories.
