Summary (From the publisher):

The original inhabitants of North and South America have a rich tradition of stories and legends, but few contemporary writers have turned to this ancient body of legend to inspire their work. Spurred by his longtime interest in American pre-hirtoy and the storytelling traditions of Native Americans, bestselling writer Piers Anthony has comissioned and gathered these tales and fantasies based on those traditions.

Between these covers are stories written by Native American storytellers and by well known fantasy writers, by writers making their very first sale and by popular favorites. What they have in common is that they were sparked by the varied traditions of the many peoples of the Western Hemisphere, from the trickster tales of Raven to the Jaguar stories of Central America.
