Step into a colorful pageantry of the powerful people who once ruled and still influence the great state of Texas. From the Caddo in the Piney Woods, the Lipan Apache in the Southwest, the Wichita at the Red River, and the Comanche across the Great Plains to the Alabama-Coushatta in the Big Thicket, five nations come alive through myth and history in Jane Archer's vividly written book about the first Texans.
"Texas Indian Myths and Legends is a valuable contribution to the literature of Native America . . . full of wonderful stories told in a simple and engaging manner".
Author of "The Ballad of Billy Badass and the Rose of Turkestan"
"Archer's Texas Indian Myths and Legends places the tales from a number of neighboring tribes side by side and helps dispel the mistaken impression that all Indians have similar beliefs and backgrounds".
