a dizzy coyote sticks the stars in the sky... Or did the stars really escape from an inquisitive little girl named Kotciminyako? It depends on which grandmothers tale you hear. Among the native peoples of the American Southwest, grandmothers are often the storytellers, and this latest addition to the Look West Series celebrates the time-honored powers and marvelous oral traditions of the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, and other tribes. Retold by the husband-and-wife team of Win and Meredith Blevins, Tales from the Grandmothers presents old stories for contemporary readers, both Native and Anglo, in original and magical poetry and prose including bits of grandmotherly advice, encouragement, and warning.

And because cooking is one path of womens wisdom, there are also a few traditional recipes.
