Native Americans celebrate the natural beauty and majestic power of the North American continent through these traditional legends of the Hopi, the Navajo, and Iroquois tribes. Stirring words and beautifully evocative images bring this land to life, from the Adirondacks to the Black Hills to Vancouver Island. Journey from coast to coast and soak up the historic and spiritual significance of those places, animals, and plants immortalized in native lore. Whether recounting The Creation of the Sacred Mountains or the Origin of the Buffalo, these stories are more than literature, they are the foundation of culture itself: a culture bound to the land.
