Stories of the Sioux by Luther Standing Bear( )

3 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 1,813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luther Standing Bear, a Lakota Sioux born in the 1860s, heard these legends in his youth, when his people were being moved to reservations. Haunting in mood and imagery, they celebrate the old nomadic life of the Sioux when buffalo were plentiful and all nature fed the spirit. The twenty stories honor not only the buffalo but also the dog, horse, eagle, and wolf as workaday helpers and agents of divine intervention; the wisdom of the medicine man; and the heroism and resourcefulness of individual men and women
Land of the spotted eagle by Luther Standing Bear( )

When Standing Bear returned to the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation after sixteen years' absence, his dismay at the condition of his people may well have served as a catalyst for the writing of this book, first published in 1933. In addition to describing the customs, manners, and traditions of the Teton Sioux, Standing Bear also offered general comments about the importance of Native cultures and values and the status of Indian peoples in American society.

Coyote stories by Mourning Dove( Book )

6 editions published between 1933 and 2005 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mourning Dove, whose Indian name is Humishuma, an Okanogan Indian woman, has written these 27 stories as she heard them from the story tellers of her tribe on the Colville reservation in northeastern Washington. In most of them the central character is Coyote. They concern his adventures among the Animal People, who were before the Real People in the Pacific northwest. Coyote was an important character because he was put to work by the spirit chief to make the "world a good place in which to live" and to prepare it for the coming of the tribes"--Review in Oregonian, Portland, Oregon, Dec. 24, 1933
