Prankster, warrior, seducer, fool: Old Man Coyote is the most enduring legend in Native American culture. Crafty and cagey - and often the victim of his own magical intrigues and lusty appetites - he created the earth and man.

Based on tales collected by Barry Lopez from forty-two tribes, the stories bring to life a timeless myth that abounds with sly wit, erotic adventure, and rueful wisdom.
