My Review
Spider Spins A Story by Jill Max
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one of my favorite collections of Native American stories. This book offers lovely renditions of the tales and each story is accompanied with historical information pertaining to the tribe that contributed the tale. The gorgeous illustrations depict a variety of tribal-inspired art.

I wish this book was more readily available in hardback - kids are rough on paperbacks and this paperback version probably wouldn't have survived my childhood (and this book is one that I would have wanted to keep forever, even as a young child). I recommend tracking down a hardback copy for serious collectors of myths and legends.
