From the Back Cover:

Jaime de Angulo drew on his forty years among the Pit River tribe of California to create the amalgam of fiction, folklore, tall tales, jokes, ceremonial ritual, and adventure that is Indian Tales. He first wrote these stories to entertain his children, borrowing freely from the worlds of the Pit, and also of the Miwok, Pomo, and Karok. The author's intent was not so much to render anthropologically faithful translations - though they are here - as to create a magical world fueled by the power of storytelling while avoiding the dangers of the romantic and picturesque.

About the Author:

Jaime de Angulo was born in Paris in 1887. At eighteen he came to the United States, where he spent his first years as a ranch hand in the Far West. He later studied medicine at Johns Hopkins and served in the Medical Corps during World War I. He passed several decades with the Indian tribes of the Pacific Coast in roles varying from anthropologist to unofficial medicine man. He died in Berkeley in 1950.
