The 26 American Indian stories herein, have been, time out of mind, in their original form, recited around the lodge-fires and under the trees, by the Indian story-tellers, for the entertainment of the Native American children of the West.
Here you will find the stories of THE CELESTIAL SISTERS, THE BOY WHO SET A SNARE FOR THE SUN, STRONG DESIRE AND THE RED SORCERER, WUNZH. THE FATHER OF INDIAN CORN, WHITE FEATHER AND THE SIX GIANTS, SHEEM, THE FORSAKEN BOY and many, many more.
They were originally interpreted from the old tales and legends by the late Henry R. Schoolcraft, and then re-interpreted and developed by the Editor, so as to enable them, as far as worthy, to take their place amongst classics like the Arabian Nights, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and other world-renowned tales of Europe and the East, to which, in their original conception, they bear a resemblance in romantic interest and quaint extravagance of fancy.
The Editor hopes that these beautiful and sprightly legends of the West will repay, in part at least, the glorious debt which we have incurred to the Eastern World for her magical gifts of the same kind.
