This book is a collection of old Wyandot tales, told by Hen-Toh himself. The stories are written in the pidgin English that most of the Elders spoke at the time of its writing. What this does is give the tales a distinct personality, a kind of insight into what the perspective of the people was at the time of its writing.

Each story teaches a separate lesson, although the lessons are not inherent within the tales themselves. At no point do the tales come off as paternal or condescending, instead
I was really happy to stumble upon this collection of Wyandot animal tales in a local Goodwill. The twelve tales, mostly revolving around Old Fox and Old Coon, are written using the vernacular of an older Wyandot woman living in the nineteenth century. I could almost hear her voice as I read.
