100s of American myths, legends and folklore. Charles M. Skinner published collections of myths, legends and folklore found inside the United States, at a time when the US was starting to enter the world stage, and was in the process of building a national, as well as a number of regional mythologies.These tales have been gathered from sources diverse as: records, histories, newspapers, magazines, oral narrative. Mixed into this collection are many stories which are from Native American sources.
The record of America's myths, legends and folklore are of deep importance, and as time goes on the figures seen against the morning twilight of our history will rise to more commanding stature, and the mists of legends will invest them with a softness or glory that shall make reverence for them spontaneous and deep.
