Winner of the 2014 BP Readers Choice Award for Short Story Collections and Anthologies by the New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Author Ty Nolan Here are some Stories (Traditional Native Legends) and some stories (personal history.) I am a professional storyteller and a therapist. Coyote Still Going retells the mostly Sahaptin and Twana traditional legends I was taught by my relatives. It's also a memoir of how I have told these stories, from celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mr. Rogers to using the Sahaptin legend of the Butterfly at an International AIDS Conference in discussing grief and loss. Traditional Native American legends are powerful teaching tools. The book also contains recipes. Food, spirituality, and community are always woven together—you can’t understand one without the others. I was raised with the importance of the sacredness of food and the legends that explain why we celebrate the First Salmon Ceremony, or why we understand taking a sip of water before a meal is a type of prayer. Many Native Nations begin a Coyote legend with some variation of “Coyote Was Going There.” Trust me—Coyote? Still Going. It’s about time Ebooks caught up with that crazy Trickster. (Author's Note: This book is available in both an Ebook and Paperback format. Please note the two versions are not precisely the same. As pointed out in the reviews, the Ebook contains a substantial number of hyperlinks that I used as a type of “footnote” to document and support some of my observations and comments. I also linked to graphic images of traditional and contemporary art that I would have difficulty in obtaining the rights to use in a book. Understandably, a paperback is not well served by having so many hyperlinks. Just so, I went back to slides I had made for various lectures from years ago (when speakers actually used slides rather than Power Point). I was able to convert the slides into digital images. The photos in the paperback version are not the ones I used in the Ebook, but will provide yet another way of thinking about the stories.)
