Every culture and every nation has legends. Early cultures used them to explain the things in life they could not understand -- why the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, why the moon has phases, or why some years are better than others. The Indians of North America were no different. This book tells the Indian legends behind many of nature's wonders. Among the 23 tales told, you will discover how rivers were formed, how the raven freed the people and why rabbits hop -- at least according to legend. This book is for an audience of all ages, but is written in simple yet informative text that will be especially enjoyed by children.
