American Indian Fairy Tales

Henry R. Schoolcraft

Book Overview: 

With no written language, Native Americans living in the Lake Superior region passed their cultural identity down through the generations by way of stories. Far more than mere tales to amuse children, they passed along the collective wisdom of the tribes. In the 1830s, government Indian Agent and ethnologist Henry R Schoolcraft learned the language of these people and went out to collect and preserve their stories before the tribes disappeared under the westward rush of American civilization. Though these stories were recast as children’s fairy tales in the 1920s, they contain much of the old wisdom of a culture which has largely disappeared

It is remarkable how similar these American Indian tales are to traditional European fairy tales. Many of them could be brought under the category of fable, allegory or parable as many have a moral or lesson to live by. Many are extremely perfervid and leave a marked impression on the reader. Right

I love fairy tales. Always have. It was great to be able to take a look at the fairy tales of another culture. They felt more like folk tales than fairy tales, but oh well. Some of them had moments of each, and I enjoyed the stories. It was an impulse buy, and I'm really glad that I picked it up.

Not really fairytales, but a nice collection of fables.

Me faltaban leer los dos últimos cuentos y hoy por fin lo he terminado luego de dejarlo de lado tanto tiempo.
Son pequeños cuentos cortitos, ideal para niños que narran distintas historias relacionadas con espíritus de la naturaleza como el viento del norte.

اصغي إلي الفتاة التتي تتوق لأرض السعادة تلك
