These moving stories were collected and passed down orally for generations before being written down. Through the tradition of storytelling the wolf has hunted with humans, warned them of imminent danger, and rewarded them with lifelong loyality for acts of friendship. The Sioux, Pawnee, Cherokee, Tlingit and Tsimshian Indians are the sources for the tales. Each story reflects the deep respect that Native Americans have for the wolf. Even today wolves still have much to teach us.Powell, Mary is the author of 'Wolf Tales Native American Children's Stories', published 1993 under ISBN 9780941270731 and ISBN 0941270734.
