Review: Myths and Legends of Our Own Land

Myths and Legends of Our Own Land
Myths and Legends of Our Own Land by Charles M. Skinner
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Informative but appallingly dull book on various legends of the continental US. Very dated (obviously), but does give some interesting gleamings into the history of the country, through the various Native peoples and settlers. The book is also heavily weighted toward the East Coast states and territories. The anecdotes are more along the lines of Native American legends and ghost stories told by the US settlers.
