Folk-Lore and Legends: Native American

Folklore:


It might have been expected that the Native Americans would have many Folklore tales to tell, and in this volume I have endeavoured to present such of them as seemed to me to best illustrate the primitive character and beliefs of the people.

The belief, and the language in which it is clothed, are often very beautiful.

Fantastic imagination, magnanimity, moral sentiment, tender feeling, and humour are discovered in a degree which may astonish many who have been apt to imagine that advanced civilisation has much to do with the possession of such qualities.

I know of nothing that throws so much light upon Native American character as their Folk-tales.
