Summary An enthralling collection of traditional Blackfoot stories revealing the frailty of mankind and the enduring power of narrative. Hugh Dempsey has gathered together a number of Napi stories passed on through oral tradition, many recorded and analyzed by outsiders, but used by permission of Blackfoot elders. These stories offer complex insight into an ancient and still-thriving culture through the figure of a flawed yet powerful creature - a mirror of humankind itself
