Sara brought this home a while back and it looked interesting. It was.
There are 21 tales represented here by various adaptors and artists. The differing styles of art are either a plus or a minus depending on whether you appreciate more or less of them. I generally did appreciate most of them so it was a bonus for me.
Being Native American trickster tales they generally center on coyote, rabbit, raccoon and raven, although sometimes the trickster does take human form.
At least 25 of the 44 adaptors and illustrators are of Native American descent based on the bios at the back.
Recommended for anyone interested in an assortment of Native American trickster tales.
This met “A book about a different faith or religion” from my 2017 “looking all around” challenge.
This is the 8th book in my 2017 10th Annual Graphic Novel/Manga Challenge [2017gnc]
