While teaching stories are integral to all traditions, some are able to bridge cultural gaps better than others. These authentic stories are part of a series narrated Native American storytellers. Joe Bruchac employs vocal variety, with changes in pitch and pacing, to keep the listener interested in his stories. Another factor in the success of his presentation is the universal quality of the stories he has chosen to tell. He uses a traditional Native American “voice,” a specific pitch and tone unique to his culture. Those who listen to the entire series will be struck by similarities among certain tales from different tradtions, always a part of the fascination of storytelling. The series provides an appealing view of these cultures. S.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 93]
