by John Bierhorst (Author), Ron Hilbert Coy (Illustrator). Bierhorst presents 22 tales, varying in length and complexity, about little people, from 14 Native American groups, including the Inuit, Aztec, and Maya cultures. Although folklorists don't consider these stories to be folktales in the ordinary sense (they "are called memorates, implying that they have been taken straight from the memory despite their extraordinary subject matter"), readers will still enjoy their depiction of the power and influence the little people exert over humans and everyday events.

Twenty-two stories retold from fourteen Native-American groups from Alaska to mid-South America

Twenty-two stories retold from fourteen Native-American groups from Alaska to mid-South America. Little people predate the Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. They live in forests, in water, underground, and on mountains. Though each tale is different, the little people themselves are recognizable from one story to the next. They are capable of playing tricks, yet offer help when someone is in trouble.

In the Trail of the Wind: American Indian Poems and Ritual Orations, Farrar, Straus, and Giroux (New York, NY), 1998. John Bierhorst became interested in Native American cultures in the early 1960s, which led him to create many volumes of translated tales, retellings, and studies that have been enjoyed by both children and adults over more than four decades. After writing so many books about Native Americans in other areas, Bierhorst realized that little of the native literature from the Indians near his own home had ever been preserved in print.

If you ever see them, don't be afraid.Talk to them, be nice to them, and they will bring you luck.

The world of the little people is no farther than the patch of woods beyond the last house. Yet it is a place of mystery, closely connected to nature. From the little people come rain and wind. From their cooking pots comes food that never runs out. They themselves are small, but their strength and wisdom are great, providing a source of lasting power for average-size humans.

Here are twenty-two not-quite-folktales in an unusual collection gathered from the Mohawk, the Cherokee, the Zuni, the Inuit, the Maya, and other Native American groups. Though each tale is different, the little people themselves are recognizable from one story to the next. They are capable of playing tricks, yet offer help when someone is in trouble. They run and hide, yet want to make friends, even propose marriage.

Are the little people real? Or do they live only in stories? The answer to both questions is a resounding yes, as explained by folklorist John Bierhorst in a fascinating introduction exploring the history and meaning of the little people in Native American culture.

Complementing the tales are perceptive illustrations by Native American artist Hilbert Coy, demonstrating that the helpful (and sometimes not so helpful) little people are everywhere -- at least to those who have eyes to see them.
