KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of traditional tales gleaned from the folklore of the North American Indians. The stories are short and ideal for reading aloud. They tell of Micabo the hare who escaped the wolf by building an island from a grain of sand; of Little Girl who encouraged Ugly Thing to seek out his Real Face; of the origins of the White Falcon People; of the rescue of Sun Arrow from the mouth of a toad; of the war between the Beaver and Porcupine peoples. The content is intriguing enough to hold the attention of most folk lore enthusiasts and the tales unfamiliar enough to keep them reading, though the style of writing is more British than Red Indian.
