Indian Legends of the Northern Rockies Paperback - 1988

by Ella C. Clark


From the publisher

The stories in this unusual collection come from the twelve tribes of Indians that, in historic times, have lived in the present states of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. They include myths, legends, personal narratives, and historical traditions preserved by highly respected storytellers, and reveal much about the lives and beliefs of the early Indians.

The sections of the book are arranged to represent Indians of six linguistic groups: Nez Percs; Flatheads, Kalispels (or Pend d'Oreilles), and Coeur d'Alnes(Skitswish); Kutenais; Shoshonis and Bannocks; Arapahoes, Gros Ventres, and Blackfeet; and Crows and Assiniboines. Although attention is focused on Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, the factual introductions to the various sections cover a larger--from the Cascade Range of western Washington and Oregon almost to the Mississippi River. Because the Sioux frequently came into Montana and Wyoming to make war and to hunt buffalo, two of their landscape legends are included.

These are the stories which used to be told around winter fires for the entertainment and instruction of the Indian family. The simplicity of style characterizing the narrations is truly reflective of their origins in oral literature.

Mythology is related to history in this volume, which belongs in any library or home where instruction is intended to delight.

First line

IN FORMER TIMES, the lives of the Indians of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming followed two fairly distinct patterns, each pattern adapted to the geographical environment.
