The children all stopped to say good night to little Sees-in-the-dark, a brand-new baby sister of Bluebird's; then they all went to bed. The next day the boys played at war, just as white boys do; and the girls played with dolls dressed in buckskin clothes, until it grew tiresome, when they visited relatives until it came time for us all to go to their grandfather's lodge.

I Dedicate this little book to my friend charles M. russell the cowboy artist george bird grinnell the indian's friend. And to all others who have known and loved old montana. For I hold them all as kin who have builded fires where nature wears no make up on her skin. Transmitted orally through countless generations, the folk stories of our ancestors show many evidences of distortion and of change in material particulars; but the Indian seems to have been too fond of nature and too proud of tradition to have forgotten or changed the teachings of his forefathers. Childlike in simplicity, beginning with creation itself, and reaching to the whys and wherefores of nature's moods and eccentricities, these tales impress me as being well worth saving.

"Why" was a little of what I expected, didn't give me enough, but tossed in some extras. I thought it would be almost an encyclopedia of tales about "where things came from." It did that, but too, way too few of them. What was there covered a pretty broad range from how chipmunks got their stripes to the Great Flood. With that spectrum, a lot more stories could have been told. What I did enjoy was the narrator's background on many of the stories. I'd almost prefer to have more of that if I couldn't get more actual stories. All that said, the narrative was charming and seemed true to the nature of the book.

Our local newspaper, the Houston Chronicle, published excerpts from this book in both English and Spanish as part of a summer reading program. After reading the excerpt, I had to have the book. Unfortunately, the day it arrived, my friend picked it up and browsed through it, borrowed it and has yet to return it. I WILL track him down and retrieve it.
It was free. I'm satisfied. Paragraph and story seperation was a bit messed up, but I still read them fine.
