Charles M. Skinner wrote at approximately the time that the frontier closed. It was a time when the US was starting to enter the world stage, and was in the process of building a national, as well as a number of regional mythologies. In the process, many stories which were apocryphal or pure inventions were elevated to the status of folklore. Mixed into this collection are many stories which are from Native American sources.
This book has 379 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1896.
Production notes: This e-book of Myths and Legends of Our Own Land was published by Global Grey in 2018.
