KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of stories and poems of exceptional, unstudied charm and beauty that describe, in the words of famous Indian storytellers and chiefs, such things as courtship, the rites of puberty, songs of lovers, blanket signals, picture writing, legends, woodcraft, hunting, and the hopeless battle against the encroaching whites. In each case, author and tribe are identified.
