Wigwam Evenings (annotated) (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-2 Weeks
Wigwam Evenings is a classic Native American story collection by Charles Eastman. These scattered Sioux folklore stories from the unwritten school-book of the wilderness have been gathered together for the children of to-day; both as a slight contribution to the treasures of aboriginal folk-lore, and with the special purpose of adapting them to the demands of the American school and fireside. That is to say, we have chosen from a mass of material the shorter and simpler stories and parts of stories, and have not always insisted upon a literal rendering, but taken such occasional liberties with the originals as seemed necessary to fit them to the exigencies of an unlike tongue and to the sympathies of an alien race.
