This is Stories from and Proverbs from Native Americans (the Indians of this land).
What a beautiful book this is. Learn how the words of wisdom the Indians taught their young and learned by them. The simple yet hard life they lead. The love of the land, trees, water and even the air they breathed. They took care of all this precious things that they held dear to them and in return the land took care of them. The Indian didn’t kill more then what they ate or needed to make clothing or tents out of. And then different people came here killed and destroyed the Indians way of life, destroyed the most precious gift God gave them.
 
Now catch a glimpse of their proverbs they told to their young, the stories that little’s listened to by the camp fire, as you would by your fireplace.

His parents didn’t approve of his wife because she was Indian. wouldn’t you say that is sad? When the little girl would ask her Mother of her ancestry her mother would not answer her.
