Unknown - 2001
Rate this:
In this collection of twenty-seven delightful stories, there are trickster tales full of sly humor and tales of magic and the supernatural, of adventure and derring-do. "How and Why" stories explain why the buzzard is bald and how the alligator's nose was broken. We laugh along with Rabbit when, to impress the pretty girl he wants to marry, he tricks Wolf into letting him ride him like a horse. Tales from familiar peoples such as the Cherokee, Choctaw, Seminole, and Cree are here, as well as from less well-known tribes. Jane Curry has also provided helpful notes "About the Southeastern Tribes," "About the Storytellers," and "About the Stories."There is a happy variety in these stories, retold with great skill by a gifted writer, whose earlier book of Native American tales, Back in the Beforetime, has been a favorite for years. Storytellers and young readers alike will welcome The Wonderful Sky Boat.
