Native American Myths

The Algonquins, Iroquois, the legend of Hiawatha and The Last of the Mohicans – the tribes of North America and their folk tales are deeply fascinating because they are unique amongst the mythologies of the world. The tribes were isolated from outside influence for thousands of years and developed a fruitful, empathetic relationship with their landscape, evolving a tradition that respected and feared nature in equal measure.

The retold tales collected for this new book celebrate the diverse tribal vision of a rich and powerful land that still resonates today.
