Show synopsis "This unique and original book sets the standard for such volumes. I can't see anyone coming along for quite some time who would be able to supersede it or top it for quality and inclusiveness."--Brian Swann, editor of "Coming to Light" "It is a masterful treatment of oral literature. . .a wonderful combination of great verbal art and sound scholarship, carefully crafted so that the collection begins and ends with a powerful creation tale."--Leanne Hinton, author of "Flutes of Fire" "Since each of the contributing specialists has first-hand familiarity with the material, the translations are of unusual authenticity and the annotations are of unusual insightfulness. Luthin's own introductory sections are especially vivid and well-informed."--William Bright, author of "A Coyote Reader"
