Inhaltsangabe: Presents seven tales reinvented from native American mythology, descriptively explaining traditions and mores using the legendary Coyote as the central figure.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7-These short, lively tales, based on Native American stories, center around the character of the creative, forgetful trickster. In the first tale, Wolf and Coyote decide that they must be the first beings in the world; as the Earth grows and other animals appear, Coyote establishes rules for them. In a pourquoi tale that explains why Coyote likes Moon better than Sun, he steals Sun's beautiful leggings and is burned as a result. In "Coyote Learns a Lesson," the animal tricks all of the deer into dancing over a cliff in order to get himself a meal, but stops in time to leave one pregnant doe. In another tale, Coyote carves wooden sticks into the first people and instructs them to "do the dances when they should be done." In another, he gets revenge on people who made fun of him by turning into a maiden and marrying the chief's handsome son. Rorer's full-page black-and-white illustrations-one per selection-are attractive. Although Ude cites no actual sources, he discusses in his afterword which elements of the tales are drawn from various Native American traditions and which are his invention. These tales, full of the unexpected, are easy to read and could be good for classroom storytelling as well as for helping to explore more facets of the nature of this enigmatic hero.
