Book review

The fascinating world of the Hopis is brought to light in this original and informative collection of thirty animal tales featuring Field Mouse, Coyote the Trickster, Cicada and his flute, Medicine Man Badger, the Chipmunk Girls and the Antelope Kids, and many other manifestations of serpents, insects, and birds. These ancient folk tales are traditionally told in midwinter, when the nights are long and cold and all the crops are in. Highly entertaining, the narratives reveal attitudes toward important aspects of Hopi culture, such as courtship and relations between the sexes, friendship, courage, industry, healing, and the treatment of children.
 
Ekkehart Malotki, who compiled the original tales in the Hopi vernacular, has meticulously edited and translated the tales in this special English language edition. An introduction by the distinguished folklorist Barre Toelken examines the cultural relevance of Hopi oral literature and places the tales within a wider, comparative context.
