Coyote Stories of the Montana Salish Indians

$10.00 each


Coyote stories that impart valuable lessons to little ones about how not to be.


In “Coyote Get Lovesick,” told by Pete Beaverhead, Coyote is so struck by the beauty of the chief’s daughter that he forgets to eat and drink. In “Coyote and Raven,” told by Eneas Pierre, hungry Coyote tricks Raven into dropping the grease he is carrying. And in “Coyote’s Dry Meat Turns into Live Deer,” Pete Beaverhead tells how sharing is never enough for Coyote, whose greed gets the best of him.
