Myths and Legends of the Great Plains is a compilation of Native American traditional literature. The legends are compiled from a variety of Native American tribes. Many of the legends and myths seek understanding into how and why the world works, such as “How the World was Made” and “The First Fire.” Animal behavior is also included in selections like “Why the Possum Plays Dead.”
Judson offers the reader thoughtful insight into the various myths and legends of the plains Native Americans. The compilation is organized and the addition of pictures is a nice touch. It would be interesting to have students compare and contrast similar myths from various tribes, For instance, there are thunder bird legends from three different tribes that students could analyze.
