These Native American tales come from the Assiniboin traditions and are part of Parabola's valuable Storytime series. Ron Evans, of Chippewa-Cree and Assiniboin descent, has a soft voice and subtle cadence that perfectly suit the stories. His style is clear and unadorned, much like the tales. The trickster/troublemaker Inktomi has many guises in the animal world. His foolishness helps us learn why the wood duck's eyes are red or the mouse's tail smooth. The elegant simplicity of the legends reflects the evolution and creation of animals and the culture that created them. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 95]
