Beautifully and authentically narrated, these stories tell among other things, of how Nanapush, the Grandfather of Beings and Men, created the earth upon the back of a great turtle; of how Mànàka’has the Rainbow Crow, flew to the twelfth heaven to receive the gift of fire from the Creator; and of how the Lenapé people came to live along the eastern seaboard of what is now known as the United States.

The Grandfathers Speak is part of the Interlink International Folk Tales Series. Rich in cultural significance, the tales in this series—suitable for both adults and young adults—represent the best, the strangest, and the most curious of the oral literature of peoples whose legends have been largely unavailable in English. Each title in this bestselling series includes a collection of 20 to 30 tales together with an introduction and a historical overview which give the reader compelling insights into the culture, the folk literature, and the lives of the people in the region.
