Description
These stories of healing involve persons with the incredible ability to transform into powerful animals. With the aid of more than 40 myths from the oral traditions of 30 Native American tribes, ranging from the Eskimos to the Indians of Guiana, Pijoan invites readers to take a close look at the common spirit that binds together all forms of life. The native American heroes and heroines in these myths, imbued with the strength of this common spirit, possess the power to transform themselves into snakes, birds, bears, wolves, and occasionally, as in the Sikyatki tale "Water Jar Boy," into everyday objects. This Native American folktale will teach readers the importance of courage and resourcefulness.
