Fiction. Native American Studies. This is a compilation of Native American stories from the Abenaki tribe retold by Joseph Bruchac. In this book he captures the mysticism and adventure that these previous oral stories had. The illustrations by Kahionhes brilliantly depict some scenes in the stories and add to the experience of reading the book. Joseph Bruchac lives with his wife, Carol, in the Adirondack foothills town of Greenfield Center, New York in the same house he was raised by his grandparents. Much of his writing draws on that region of his Abenki ancestry. Kahionhes, or John Fadden, is an artist, art teacher, and the illustrator of more than twenty books dealing with Native Americans. He lives with his wife, Eva Thompson Fadden, and their three sons in the Adirondacks.
