Publisher's Summary

This collection of traditional Lakota stories is dedicated to children of all nations and races. The stories are a giveaway, a way of returning the gift of the stories preserved by Lakota elders and grandparents to pass on the traditions and perspectives of their people. These stories, usually told on winter evenings, are intended to teach proper behavior or a moral lesson, but without the narrow moralizing of many familiar fables. Good and evil are neither obvious nor polarized, and the multidimensional characters must face difficult choices, similar to ones that children and adults encounter in the present day. Storyteller Dovie Thomason has carefully selected seven timeless Lakota stories to teach and entertain youngsters, and their parents, too.

    "wonderful fables give insight to a culture"

    This is short but very enjoyable for children and adults. A great and positive way to introduce kids to native american ways - and very interesting fables in any case
