David Leeming and Jake Page, building on the success of their "Goddess: Myths of the Female Divine" and "God: Myths of the Male Divine," have provided an introduction and commentary on 72 myths drawn from a variety of cultures and language groups. They honor the Native pantheons, cosmologies, heroes, and heroines first as cultural expressions, then as variations on other mythic narratives to which they may be related, and ultimately as expressions of the larger human experience of mythmaking.
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West does its best to honor Native culture, dedicating an entire museum to Plains Indians history — both past and contemporary. Buying Native American history
books (such as this one) through Points West Market is a great way to support the museum. Every dollar goes directly to the Center of the West.
