Description

The Mythology of Native North America by English literature professor David Leeming and Jake Page observe that the traditional oral stories of Indigenous Peoples are considered myths. Because most North Americans experience mythology by way of translations of classical texts, and few people are familiar with Coyote, Spider Woman, Water Jar boy, Falling Sky Woman, or the epic of the Blessingway - to name just a few of the stories retold in this collection of significant narratives of Native North America. The authors provided an introduction and commentary on seventy-two so-called myths drawn from a variety of cultures. This volume is suitable for university and college library collections but readers should be aware that this organization and analysis is a Eurowestern perespective.
