Reprint. Originally published: 1998.

Long before people could read or write, stories were passed on by word of mouth.

Every time they were told, they changed a little, with a new character added here and a twist to the plot there.

From these ever-changing tales, myths and legends were born.In this retelling of 12 North American myths and legends this book attempts to give each story greater relevance by placing it in the context of its time and place in the world.

It includes a brief biography of the many heroes, villains and gods who appear in the tales.Each one is illustrated with artwork that is intended to transport children to a fantasy kingdom of larger than life heroes, trickster gods and terrifying kings.
