    1. These fables and porquoi tales may not appeal to many students. Each tale takes one page and is written in free verse, with a line drawing on the opposite page. Some of them were interesting, and the collection may be worth browsing. The tales do not appear to be of any particular origin, although the author credits the inspiration of "a Navajo shaman".
