    Before anyone reach this review, I did not give this book a lower review because it is bad, I just did not thoroughly enjoyed the book, and I do put a lot of the reasoning on my own preferences. Native American culture, and poetry, are not books I typically read or find a lot of enjoyment. That does not mean they are bad, it just means I'm not the biggest fan. That said, I feel that a lot of these songs and chants are impossible to fully appreciate without the music and culture behind them.

Native American culture, and poetry, are not books I typically read or find a lot of enjoyment. That does not mean they are bad, it just means I'm not the biggest fan. That said, I feel that a lot of these songs and chants are impossible to fully appreciate without the music and culture behind them. I need them or short, and I feel that something must be missing because they do not feel like they could be songs or poems when they're only a few lines at best. The book is well organized, the chapters are broken in the different regions of the United States. In the introduction of the book gives a history about the journey to translate these songs and chants so they could be understood for generations to come. This brief history about native Americans would be of great interest to historians, and I'm sure that those who have much more passion for this genre then I do would enjoy it more. But this isn't particularly favorite book of mine.
