Living Ghosts & Mischievous Monsters: Chilling American Indian Stories

by Dan SaSuWeh Jones illustrated by Weshoyot Alvitre

This is a collection of Native American tales that I had the luxury of reading over the summer. From old myths, to paranormal experiences, to tales rooted in history itself, Living Ghosts & Mischievous Monsters: Chilling American Indian Stories has a little something for everyone. A great read for Halloween and an even greater warm up read for Native American Heritage Month, this book will have you sleeping with the lights on!
