"This collection of 18 Native American legends from the Yosemite region is genuine, representative and entertaining. Featuring characters such as A-ha-le the Coyote and Wek-wek the Falcon, the stories touch on a variety of themes central to the Sierra Miwok culture. For this revised edition, the legends have been rewritten to reflect their earliest and most authentic forms whenever possible. Additional stories from historical sources have been included as well. The volume also contains notes providing the source of each legend, information about alternate versions and variations, and an annotated bibliography with a list of important original works.
This is indigenous folklore at its best - enchanting and informative at the same time.
