Myths and Legends of the Sioux
by Marie L. Mclaughlin
Old traditions and original stories of the Sioux Indians, straight from the source, by an author who lived with them and is part Sioux herself.
"In these stories of the Sioux, told in the lodges and at the camp fires of the past, and by the firesides of the Dakotas of today, we recognize the very texture of the thought of a simple, grave, and sincere people, living in intimate contact and friendship with the big out-of-doors that we call Nature; a race… willing to believe that there may be in even the everyday things of life something not yet fully understood; a race that can, without any loss of native dignity, gravely consider the simplest things, seeking to fathom their meaning and to learn their lesson…"
