Product Description

This panoramic range of tribal stories from Navajo, Cheyenne, Hopi, Kwakiutl, Tlingit and Iroquois tellers and covers an equally large canvas of traditional spoken themes.

Popular on radio stations across America all during the 1980s and 90s and in the classrooms as well, the stories will again delight young and old alike—draw up to the fire, and give a listen.

About the Author/Reader

Gerald Hausman, born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1945, grew up in New Jersey and Massachusetts. He graduated from college in New Mexico and continued to live there for two decades. During that time, he had a summer residence on the island of Jamaica where he and his wife, Loretta, founded a school for creative writing. Mr. Hausman has lived in Bokeelia, Florida since 1994. In addition to his many books about Native America, Gerald Hausman has written extensively about animal mythology. His work as a folklorist has earned him many national and international honors. Gerald's most recent award is from the Florida Magazine Association for his column "Pine Island Soundings" about life on a barrier island.

Gerald is a frequent storyteller at college writers programs and at young authors conferences. Recently, he performed at the Young Authors Conference in Kaiserslautern, Germany as a guest of Department of Defense Dependent Schools. His lively presentations, complete with a myriad of sound effects, have earned him praise from storytellers, speakers, writers, and listeners.

Praise for Native American Animal Stories

“… and now it is time to give thanks and share so that all the stories will carry on…and mostly the stories about the relatives—bears, eagles, Coyote. We all will be on the blessed corn pollen path.”
—Jimmie Blueeyes, Navajo Nation
