Some legends tell of heroic men and women struggling against the giant forces of nature; others of mischievous animals like blue jay and coyote, or of perilous journeys and of the origins of traditional customs.
Recited as part of religious ceremonial or simply as a form of entertainment, these tales were passed from parent to child as a way of explaining the present through the past.

I love these stories and think they are great, I have always been interested in Native American myth and legend so I'm glad these were available.
That being said, the narrator uses a very obviously fake 'Native American accent' which was not only difficult to understand but was incredibly offensive. He managed to take stories that are beautiful and cheapen them. I wasn't able to finish this audiobook as I could no longer stomach the narration.
