West Coast material is included in John Bierhorst's The Mythology of North America (William Morrow & Co, 1985; reprint Oxford Press 2002). In a vast range of eleven mythological regions, including the Pacific Northwest, Bierhorst differentiates between each tribe's gods, heroes, and primary myths. This guide offers different samples of varying narrative styles, and the newest edition includes an Afterword that describes how this mythology has impacted Aboriginal affairs, aided in reclaiming land rights and to repatriate grave goods.
