16) Why the North Star Stands Still & Other Indian Legends by William R. Palmer

Couldn't find a picture for this one.  Ian bought it for me when we went hiking with Robynn and Hans at Kolob Canyons.  It was pretty good.  I enjoyed one or two stories more than the others.  It took me a long time to finish it though, because it was so boring at times.  I am really into Native American history, but something about the simplistic writing just doesn't do it for me.  I know that Palmer probably wrote that way because he was trying to represent oral story telling, which was the way Native Americans passed down their legends.  All in all, it was interesting, as I've never read much about the Pahute Indians, but it's not my favorite book on Native American legends by any means.
