G.W. Mullins, author of the best-selling series “The Native American Story Book Volumes 1 -5” and “Walking With Spirits Volumes 1-5” returns with the hardback release “Supernatural Tales Of The Native American Indians.” Light Of The Moon Publishing has released this new book which features stories of the Native Americans with original art by award winning artist C.L. Hause. Contained in 258 pages, it is a huge collection of Native American history.
Native American Mythology began long before the European settlers arrived on North American soil. Contrary to popular beliefs, there is more to Native American Folklore than stories of buffalo hunts, teepee living and animal stories. Hundreds of tribes throughout North American created a huge mythological system that has rivaled that of the Greeks.
Since the beginning of time every civilization has presented its own collection of strange tales and folklore. The Native American Indians are no different. Many of their stories included giants, hideous creatures, ghosts, beings from the spirit world, witches and many others. These creatures have haunted various corners of North America for thousands of years. The stories have been handed down from generation to generation. Some stories are amusing, while others are meant to be a terrifying lesson in life and contain eerie details and gruesome facts that will make your skin crawl.
The stories collected in this book represent some of the best to be found. Many represent ghosts and their interaction with the living, some evil in nature while others appear quite normal. They teach a lesson that the dead don’t automatically become ghosts. Many of the stories give a brief hint to an afterlife. While some ghosts go about their everyday lives in spirit form, and others attempt to come back from the other side. Some come back for revenge on the living.
Among the stories included are: Wakiash and the First Totem Pole, Two Ghostly Lovers, The Land of the Dead, The Double Faced Ghost, A Journey to the Skeleton House, The Skeleton Who Fell Down Piece By Piece, The Spirit Wife, The Transformed Grandmother, Blue Jay Visits Ghost Town, The Ghost Wife, The Flood, The Elk Spirit of Lost Lake, Ghost of the White Deer, The Resuscitation of the only Daughter, Heavy Collar and the Ghost Woman, Origin of the Medicine Man, The Medicine Grizzly Bear, The Ghosts’ Buffalo, The Spirit Land, The Skin Shifting Old Woman, The Fatal Swing, The Simpleton’s Wisdom, The Ghost Country, The Legend of the Maid of the Mist, Ghost Stallion, Song of the Ghost Dance, The Deserted Children, How the Worm Pipe Came to the Blackfoot, Tale of Coyote and the Origin of Death and many, many more.
