About the Author:

Suzi Jones is deputy director at the Anchorage Museum in Anchorage, Alaska.

Jarold Ramsey is professor Emeritus of English at the University of Rochester and the recipient of numerous prizes and honors. He is the author of Coyote Was Going There: Indian Literature of the Oregon Country and Reading the Fire: Essays in the Traditional Indian Literatures of America (both University of Washington Press), and co-editor of The Stories We Tell: An Anthology of Oregon Folk Literature (OSU Press). In 2000, he moved back to the family ranch, north of Madras, Oregon.

From Booklist:

An entertaining, lively gathering of pioneer stories, Native American legends, songs of heroism, and hunting and fishing tales, as well as folklore handed down in Oregon that could characterize any location: stories of monsters, for instance, and of strange families, and of love triangles. Coyote ranges widely here, as in the tale of how Crater Lake came to be (Coyote fell in love with a star, but the star rejected him; when Coyote fell, he broke off a piece of a mountain. His tears made the water blue). In a nice touch, the editors include "New Old Stories"--for example, in Navajo Elizabeth Woody's "Buckskin," a 1976 Ford Galaxy takes on the aura of wild horses running free. John Mort
