  • A collection of children's tales, handed down by Seneca Indians. They have been gathered together by a Seneca anthropologist, who himself is the grandson of a leading Seneca chief. Skunny Wundy-Seneca Indian Tales is an enchanting book of children's tales handed down by Native American storytellers & collected by the noted Seneca anthropologist. "These tales are for boys & girls. It is a shame to hide them away"--Arthur C. Parker. "I wish I could have read it as a child. But the next best thing to that is being able to recommend it to the children of another generation--Native & non-Native children alike. Like the storyteller holding out his bag & asking a child to reach in & pull out the next tale to be told, it is my privilege to offer this book to you & to urge you, as Parker did so well over a century ago, to listen. Listen well."--Joseph Bruchac. Here children will meet the clever fox & raccoon, the rabbit who is often easily duped, courageous but not very bright bears, & the villainous wolf. Here too is the turtle, with a special place in Seneca mythology, & many other animal characters, the mink & eagle, buffalo, weasel, & the old snowy owl. This is the first paperback printing of Skunny Wundy.
