Review: American Indian Myths and Legends


American Indian Myths and Legends
American Indian Myths and Legends by Richard Erdoes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



A great collection and worthwhile starting place for those interested in Myths and Legends of the Native Peoples of North America. Broken up into topics with the only limitation being the one imposed by history: many of these tales were written down post-European contact (often by Europeans) so you can see Christian influence. Still, it’s imperative to know these stories in the best forms available and this book surely is one of the best.
