Synopsis: Book by Walker, Deward E., Matthews, Daniel N., Seahmer, Marc

Review: An incorrigible trickster, a clever thief, a rogue, sometimes a magnanimous hero, often a vengeful loser, but always a survivor, Coyote is the most complex character in the Nez Perce cycle of traditional myths. An anthropological analysis of Coyote's social relations with the other characters reveals how the myths, while entertaining stories, also impart traditional cultural values, proper social relations, and other practical information. Coyote's actions are often humorous, with consequences that account for many of the blessings and hardships of the Nez Perce experience. These translations from the native language are the most reliable and the most comprehensive available. Supplemented by myths from Archie Phinney and Herbert Spinden, Deward Walker's collection provides insights into the world and the myths of the Nez Perce Indians. -- Midwest Book Review
