Kootenai Why Stories is reprinted from the original 1926 edition by University of Nebraska Press Bison Books. While trapping in Montana during the 1880s, young Frank B Linderman befriended the Kootenai Indians. At their campfires he heard about Skinkoots the coyote, Co-pee the owl, Frog Chief, and the other animal people. The telling impressed him, and in 1926 he was able, from long familiarity, to translate the tales for Kootenai Why Stories. This edition contains fifteen stories written in the language of the period. Four of the stories are about Coyote.
