Navajo Coyote Tales During long winter nights Navajo families gathered around the fire in their hogans to be entertained by story-tellers. Children remained awake as long as possible to hear their elders relate the pranks and adventures of that eternal trickster, Coyote. These six delightful tales were collected directly from the Navajo by William Morgan and translated into English. Now children and adults alike can still be spellbound by Coyote as he encounters Rabbit, Fawn's Stars, Crow, Snake, Skunk Woman, and Horned Toad.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

During the last decade or so many of the customs which formerly characterized the Navajo people have tended to disappear. Among these apparently dying customs is that of story-telling. Not many years ago few Navajos had access to rapid modes of travel to visit neighboring towns. Few went to movies, or to other types of commercialized entertainment. In fact, few knew how to read and write for there were not many schools, and the white man's education was not always something to be desired from the point of view of the Navajo of former times.
