520 |a This collection of Delaware legends has long been out of print. Originally published in 1905, this collection of authentic Delaware legends has long been sought both by scholars and individuals who cherish the lessons these tales impart. Stories such as "The Hunter and the Owl" teach us the importance of keeping a promise. The legend "A-le-pah-qua, The Woman with the Two Plants" demonstrates how we should not abuse the powers we are given. This book does much more than introduce the richness of the original Delaware language to an English-speaking audience: Four of these legends have been retranslated into the Delaware language by native Delaware speakers. Readers will find line-by-line translations that reveal the eventual transformation of a transliterated Delaware text into an English-language story.
