Author: Zitkala-Sa
Illustrator: Angel De Cora
Foreward by: Agnes M. Picotte

Early in the century a magnificent Sioux woman named Zitkala-Sa published these legends that she learned during her childhood on the Yankton Reservation. Her eastern education developed a writing talent that was put to good use in recording from oral tradition the exploits of Iktomi the trickster, Eya the glutton, the Dragon Fly, the Blood Clot boy, and other magical and mysterious figures, human and animal, known to the Sioux. Until her death in 1938, Zitkala-Sa stood between two cultures as preserver and translator.
