This graphic novel collection was beautifully illustrated in several different art styles and color palates. It contains a diverse collection of Native American myths, legends and folklore. As an educator, there are several stories in this collection that I would use in my classroom ranging from kinder to 8th grade. There are many connections to be made through these pages. I loved how all the stories were vastly different in themes and art styles, yet connected with the power of storytelling. They can be easily paired with historical events or other legends/myths/folklore. At the high school level, this collection would work well in any mythology class. The stories could be used separate or the collection can be read together without losing context and meaning.

Highly recommend to diversify the graphic novel genre in all classrooms.

Several short graphic novel tales that either tell or explain indigenous legends and paranormal creatures. Most stories are child friendly, although one or two might be a bit frightening. The stories come from a variety of traditions and the illustration styles vary widely. A good introduction to indigenous stories for those new to the topic or too young to read a longer prose work.

The Woman in the Woods and Other North American Stories is a graphic novel featuring modern retellings of Native American folklore. Each of the 8 stories in this anthology has a different artist and illustrator. The stories are short and fast-paced, and the illustrations do a good job moving the stories along, This is a great resource for lower and middle-grade libraries to aid in those folklore-based ELA assignments.

The Woman in the Woods and Other North American Stories is a wonderful graphic anthology of North American folklore. The stories are from tribes across the continent. It makes a great addition to the Cautionary Fables and Fairytales & any library trying to expand its Native American holdings.
