Long before they were written down, American Indian myths were kept alive by a strong oral tradition. Have you ever wondered how the world was made? MYTHOLOGY OF THE AMERICAN INDIANS discusses this mystery, along with other myths and legends from different culture areas throughout North America. Each chapter is followed by a Question and Answer section which covers characters, themes, and symbols. An Expert Commentary section enhances the myths with opinions by noted scholars. This book is developed from AMERICAN INDIAN MYTHOLOGY to allow republication of the original text into ebook, paperback, and trade editions.
