Originally published in Spanish in 1970, Watunna is the epic history and creation stories of the Makiritare, or Yekuana, people living along the northern bank of the Upper Orinoco River of Venezuela, a region of mountains and virgin forest virtually unexplored even to the present. The first English edition of this book was published in 1980 to rave reviews. This edition contains a new foreword by David Guss, as well as Mediata, a detailed myth that recounts the origins of shamanism.

Myth: A New Symposium offers a broad-based assessment of the present state of myth study. It was inspired by a revisiting of the influential mid-century work Myth: A Symposium (edited by Thomas Sebeok). A systematic introduction and 15 contributions from a wide spectrum of disciplines offer a range of views on past myth study and suggest directions for the future. Contributors blend theoretical analysis with richly documented historical, ethnographic, and literary illustrations and examples drawn from Native American, classical, medieval, and modern sources.

Telling the Stories brings together thirteen important statements on major issues of American Indian identities and literatures. Some of the authors tell their stories and those of their people; others give scholarly attention to the most important contemporary Indian authors, such as Sherman Alexie, Louise Erdrich, Leslie Marmon Silko, and James Welch. Thus the book replicates the dynamic process of the ever-changing stories of the American Indian peoples.
