This is a rare collection of American Indian legends and lore personally gathered by the author during his residency in the unsettled portions of the golden west and the great north, supplemented with material culled from long out-of-print books and documents. He writes in the Preface. The author has no pretense of being absolutely original in these pages.These Legends have been gathered during a long and eventful life in the northern woods, the western plains, on the mountains, etc. As well as by searching the books old and out of print, in the closed cases in the basements of our libraries. In these pages you will find Native American myths about the creation, the deluge or great flood, and other aspects of the physical world. Fables and fairy tales from Indian childhood.
Sobering accounts of human sacrifice, executions of enemies, and acts of war. Massacres of Indians by white settlers.Indian songs of war and death. And much more, including Sitting Bull's account of General Custer and the Battle of Little Big Horn. The narrative is illustrated with rare Indian portraits and photos of Native American artifacts. To give you a better idea of what youll find in INDIAN LEGENDS, I have provided some helpful details below. The book has no Table of Contents, so I created my own and feature it here for your interest and convenience. Further down the page you can see some of the rare Indian portraits and photos from the book. I hope youll take a moment to have a look.
