Grade 3-6 Bruchac presents a melange of creation stories, "why" stories and stories of magic and monsters which offer something for almost any reader. Taken together, they give a picture of Indian life in the Eastern woodlands that provides an excellent complement to nonfiction works such as Sonia Bleeker's Indians of the Longhouse (Morrow, 1950; o.p.). The stories are well told and are enhanced by the full-page pencil drawings that precede each tale. The book fills a definite gap: there are several collections, such as Erdoes' Sound of Flutes and Other Indian Legends (Pantheon, 1976; o.p.), which deal with Plains Indians' tales, but with the exception of the author's earlier Turkey Brothers and Other Tales (Crossing Pr, 1975; o.p.), no other collection focuses on the Iroquois. This one is worth having both for entertainment and as a supplement to nonfiction for school study units on Indians. Li Stark, North Castle Public Library, Armonk, N.Y.
