A Brief Guide to Native American Myths and LegendsBook - 2012
In this brilliant reworking of Lewis Spence's seminal Myths and Legends of the North American Indians , Jon E. Lewis puts the work in context with an extensive new introductory essay and additional commentary throughout the book on the history of Native Americans, their language and lifestyle, culture and religion/mythology. He includes examples of myths from tribes omitted by Spence, a guide to tribes and their myths by region, a basic Lakota (Sioux) glossary, guides to key pronunciations and a bibliography.
