THE TELLING OF THE WORLD: NATIVE AMERICAN STORIES AND ART.


240 pp, 12 1/4" H. Over 125 full-colour illustrations. "(This) anthology contains legends and stores from many Native American tribes and nations - Mohawk, Sioux, Cree, Nez Perce, Yakima, Cherokee, Zuni, to name but a few - collected from both traditional and contemporary sources. These inspirational tales follow the path of life - from creation and birth, through adolescence, family relationships, love and marriage, death and renewal. Words recounted by respected storytellers reveal a unique approach to the world, as well as a desire to pass along the knowledge necessary to lead a good life. Taken as a whole, the stories reveal an innate power to entertain, to instruct, to bind people together into a healing community, and to provide an identity and a unifying vision. These stories are richly illustrated with art - paintings, sculpture, drawings - created by modern Native American artists, and historically significant artifacts. Their work showcases the enduring spirit of Native American peoples who have found ways to survive and to continue telling their stories, revealing who they are for future generations." Book is Near Fine. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at the top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing. This heavy book will require extra postage for shipping outside of Canada/United States.
