Luther Standing Bear, a Lakota Sioux born in the 1860s, heard these legends in his youth, when his people were being moved to reservations. In haunting 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, the horse, the eagle, and the 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

"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

When it was first published in 1928, Luther Standing Bear's autobiographical account of his tribe and tribesmen was hailed by Van Wyck Brooks as "one of the most engaging and veracious we have ever had." It remains a landmark in Indian literature, among the first books about Indians written from the Indian point of view by an Indian. Born in the 1860s, the son of a Lakota chief, Standing Bear was in the first class at Carlisle Indian School, witnessed the Ghost Dance uprising from the Pine Ridge Reservation, toured Europe with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, and devoted his later years
