Giving Birth to Thunder, Sleeping with His Daughter
Coyote Builds North America
Prankster, warrior, seducer, fool – Old Man Coyote is the most enduring legend in Native American culture. Crafty and cagey – often the victim of his own magical intrigues and lusty appetites – he created the earth and man, scrambled the stars and first brought fire . . . and death. Barry Lopez – National Book Award-winning author of Arctic Dreams and recipient of the John Burroughs Medal for his bestselling masterwork Of Wolves and Men – has collected sixty-eight tales from forty-two tribes, and brings to life a timeless myth that abounds with sly wit, erotic adventure, and rueful wisdom.
