A Bag of Bones: Legends of the Wintu Indians of Northern California

By Marcelle Masson

These stories come from the Wintu Indians of California's northern Sacramento Valley where they resided for thousands of years. Grant Towendolly, son of the former headman of the tribe, a Wintu philosopher, mystic, and shaman, retells their legends. 

Children of the Thunderbird: Legends and Myths from the West Coast

By Edward C. Meyers

Collection of legends and myths from the West Coast. Everything owes its existence to Great Spirit. With his supernatural helpers Great Spirit maintains order over all of his creations. This belief is at the core of the stories Pacific Coast natives told their children to explain the world.

Native American Tales and Legends

By Allan A. McFarlane

This exciting collection contains more than thirty richly imaginative stories from a variety of Native American sources — Cherokee to Zuñi, Pawnee to Midu — covering a broad spectrum of subjects, as well as tales of little people, giants, and monsters, and of magic, enchantment, sorcery, and the spirit world.


Spider Woman’s Web

By Susan Hazen-Hammond

 Illuminating the scope of human behavior—from treacherous mates and medicine men to magical sages and murderous mothers—these tales offer universal truths. And for readers who wish to explore the transformative healing gifts of these stories in a more personal way, each is accompanied by thought-provoking exercises and meditations.
