Indian Legends of the Pacific Northwest by Ella E. Clark
Book DescriptionThis collection of more than one hundred tribal tales, culled from the oral tradition of the Indians of Washington and Oregon, presents the Indians' own stories, told for generations around their fires, of the mountains, lakes, and rivers, and of the creation of the world and the heavens above. Each group of stories is prefaced by a brief factual account of Indian beliefs and of storytelling customs. "Indian Legends of the Pacific Northwest" is a treasure, still in print after fifty years.

Sacagawea of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Paperback (September 1983)» View all books by Ella E. Clark
The legend tells us of Sacagawea ("Bird Woman") as the guide showing Lewis and Clark the way over the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean, and fictionalized accounts have embroidered on her life as it might have been. In fact, however, her life as it might have been. This historical account separates the verifiable facts about Sacagawea from the legend.
