About the Book

An agent of chaos and deceit, the trickster has been a favorite character type in stories spanning thousands of years and multiple peoples. From legends belonging to Native Americans such as the Creek, Natchez, Seminole and Catawba, to tales borrowed from Africa and Europe, this work has compiled 73 trickster tales into one volume. Beginning with Creek tales, this work continues with a blend of Native American and African American folktales, organized according to the indigenous people who told them. These stories include the American Southeast’s most notorious trickster, Rabbit; his gullible victims such as Alligator, Wildcat and Wolf; and other tricksters such as Buzzard, Pig, Possum and more.
