Indian Legends from the Northern Rockies
"[It is] a work enchanting for its poetry and curiously absorbing for its history. It is poetry in no formal sense but poetry nevertheless, in terms of innate rhythms and imagination, telling of a world peopled by animals and spirits and mighty warriors, alive with the drama of life and death, somber and whimsical, full of imagery at once delicate and vivid."-Saturday Review.
"There are myths, legends, and personal narratives from the 12 tribes which lived in what is now Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Ella Clark . . .brings us as close to a seat around the winter campfire of some forgotten tribe as we can get in the 20th century."-Chicago Tribune.
"The book indicates considerable research and is well written with sympathy and humor. . . . This work can be recommended for YA reading as well as general library collections."-Library Journal.
"The author has gathered oral traditions and presented them with a simplicity of narration and style which seems to transport the listener to an ancient campfire where the old men of the tribes hold the entranced attention of their children and grandchildren."-Western American Literature.
"The book is a valuable contribution to the splendid Oklahoma series entitled "The Civilization of the American Indian."-American Literature.
