 Spider Spins a Story, May 30, 2002 
Reviewer: D L Fisher from Kingwood, TX United States
Spider Spins a Story connects Native American tribes together with 14 various 
tales, all involving a spider. Preceding each legend is a brief history and 
description of the tribe associated with each story. Muskogee, Cheyenne, 
Kiowa, Hopi, Cherokee, Navajo, and Osage tribes, as well as others, are 
mentioned in the book. 
Full of colorful, gorgeous illustrations by 6 Native American artists, the 
book is also endorsed by tribal authorities. 
It appeals to both children and adults with its wonderful storytelling of 
Native American customs and lore. It is also a great reference to the past 
history and beliefs of Native American life. 
The brilliant colors used in the illustrations are particularly appealing and 
remind the reader of fine Native American art. The Gilcrease Museum, located 
in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was an excellent choice for the detailed research needed 
to write this spectacular book. Spider Spins a Story is a perfect gift for 
all ages.
