    1. It's hard to rate the merit of a collection of cultural mythology, so I won't. I will say I did enjoy reading most of these sacred stories and it provides a unique window into the folktales of the Plains Cree people. The story is first written in Cree followed by the English translation. Bloomfield obviously strives for accurate translation but at the loss of comprehension of what is taking place when you read in English.

    2. Bloomfield's orthography is inconsistent, and he left out translations of the really fun parts of many stories (such things would have been too improper in 1930). However, the stories are quite good and it's fun to compare them with variations from other locales.
