Review:

"...Overall, Brightman's insightful analysis and year of experience with the Rock Crees of Manitoba make this book an invaluable collection of oral narratives. An extensive reference list of nearly 100 separate resources provides an excellent tool for additional research on the topic...This is a perfect book for undergraduate and graduate students studying Canadian folklore, mythology, and North American Indian studies. -Matthew J. Forss, American Review of Canadian Studies
