Loup Garrou, trickster rabbits, and spirits with names that can’t be spoken—the plains and forests of North America are alive with characters like these, all waiting to meet readers in this collection of folklore, retold in comics. This fifth volume of the Cautionary Fables & Fairytales anthology series features updated takes on ancient stories from tribes spanning the continent. Featured creators include Jordaan Arledge, Maija Ambrose Plamondon, Milo Applejohn, and more.

Notable Achievements


Kirkus Reviews: “This would be a good introductory text for readers unfamiliar with Native American folklore and culture; meanwhile, Indigenous readers may find the stories from tribes other than their own pleasingly familiar.”
