Marie L. McLaughlin, in writing Myths and Legends of the Sioux, aimed to create a written account of the many oral myths and legends that have been passed down by the Sioux people for hundreds of years, in order to guard against their loss to history. Containing nearly 40 tales, McLaughlin has assembled a robust collection of Sioux legends. Most of these stories are quite brief, with some chalking in at less than two pages. As with all good fables, the majority of these stories contain a fairly simple message. There is the story The Rabbit and the Elk, a brief tale about an elk tricking a rabbit into thinking it had been caught, which is a classic "don't count your chickens until they've hatched" story. There is also the tale The Artichoke and the Muskrat, a story which carries the message of respecting the differences between people. The legends included in this collection all proceed in a similar fashion and carry similarly simple yet important messages about how best to live life and treat others. The myths and legends included in this collection do not serve only to teach life lessons, but also offer valuable insight into the beliefs and priorities of the Sioux people. A profound respect for nature and its creatures is apparent throughout McLaughlin's book, and one cannot help but admire this aspect of the Sioux. Whether being read to children as bedtime stories, or being examined by a scholar for insight into the Sioux people, Myths and Legends of the Sioux is a valuable collection. McLaughlin's book is enjoyable on a number of levels, and is thus highly recommended to all fans of myths, legends and fairy tales.

Herein readers will find 38 Sioux folk and fairy tales. Stories like - THE FORGOTTEN EAR OF CORN, THE LITTLE MICE, THE PET RABBIT, THE STORY OF THE LOST WIFE, THE FAITHFUL LOVERS, THE BRAVE WHO WENT ON THE WARPATH ALONE AND WON THE NAME OF THE LONE WARRIOR and many more. The 38 stories contained in this little volume were told to the compiler by the older men and women of the Sioux a long, long time ago. Careful notes were made, knowing that, if not recorded correctly, these folk tales would be lost to posterity by the passing of the primitive Indian, for the American Indian race was, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, at a most interesting stage of development. Its ancient culture was fast receding into the mists of the past. The compiler of the stories was, herself, one-fourth Sioux and through her birth acquired a thorough knowledge of the Sioux language. Her maternal grandfather, a Scotsman by birth, who in 1811 arrived in the British Northwest to found what was known as the Selkirk Colony, near Lake Winnipeg. Her grandmother, Ha-za-ho-ta-win, was a full-blood of the Medawakanton Band of the Sioux Tribe of Indians. Her father, Joseph Buisson, was born near Montreal, Canada. She married Major James McLaughlin who became the Indian agent at the Devils Lake Agency, North Dakota. Later they were transferred to Standing Rock, on the Missouri River, to take charge of the Sioux who had then but recently surrendered to the military authorities. Having lived on Indian reservations over forty years she, therefore, had exceptional opportunities of learning the legends and folk-lore of the Sioux. 33% of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities.
