Contrary to popular beliefs, there is more to Native American Folklore than stories of buffalo hunts, teepee living and animal stories. Hundreds of tribes throughout North American created a huge mythological system that has rivaled that of the Greeks. This mythology is a cultural treasure trove, but many of these myths and legends have been hidden away in various old and rare books. It would be difficult for the average person to track down and collect this material. So, this vast body of wisdom has been locked away and out of reach of most people... until now.

Included in this anthology are over 100 stories in the categories of Star People, Animal Tales, People Tales, War Tales, Origin Tales and Ghost Tales. Among the stories collected are: Origin of the Sweat Lodge, The Story of Po a, The Story of the Land of Northern Lights, Tale of the Lazy Boys Who Became the Pleiades, The Moon and the Thunders, The Two War Gods and the Two Maidens, The First War, A Widow's Revenge, A War Between the Alabama And the Choctaw, The Death of Head Chief and Young Mule, Two War Trails, Escape of The Seneca Boys, The End of The First World, Mistakes of Old Man, Iktomi and the Muskrat, Beaver Medicine, The Simpleton's Wisdom, Crossing the Red Sea, Wakiash and the First Totem Pole, The Dogs of the Chief's Son, Godasiyo the Woman Chief, Blue Corn Maiden and the Coming of Winter, The Origin of the Society of Rattlesnakes, Origin of the Raven and the Macaw, Apache Creation Story, How the Old Man Made People, Origin of the Medicine Man, When the Animals and Birds Were Created, Creation of the First Indians, The Land of the Dead, The Skin Shifting Old Woman and many more.
