From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3?A collection of eight Native American creation myths. The text is very simplified, appearing somewhat stilted and disjointed as a result. The selections include "Micabo and the Flood" and "Morning Star's Son," both of which can be found in more poetic versions, e.g., Paul Goble's Star Boy (Bradbury, 1983), which is a morning-star legend that is superior in stylistic design and in the easily flowing text, and Michael Caduto and Joseph Bruchac's Keepers of the Earth (Fulcrum, 1988), which includes a more complete and coherent version of the little muskrat and the formation of the Earth tale. The illustrations are explained as incorporating specific designs indigenous to each story's tribe, but they look remarkably similar: somewhat garish and three-dimensional, as if clay figures had been fashioned and then copied. The influence for most of them appears to be Northwest Indian totem-pole designs. Although the introduction to the collection asserts that the tales and illustrations have been carefully researched, no documentation is offered.?Judy Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
