The legends appearing in this work are only a small part of the total number of American Indian legends collected by Henry Shoemaker. They are chosen for their relation and proximity to the Nittany Valley. Most are within less than an hour traveling time, and are easily visited. Some are mythical sites, but there is enough information in the legends to actually locate where they are situated. But most of them are actual historical sites with markers. Visiting all of them will take you on journeys into places where story and history, imagination and myth, as well as timeless feelings merge.
Encounter the spirit of the Nittany Valley. Drink from the same fountain of experience from which so many before you have been nourished and fortified. Share these stories to pass along a knowledge of the spirit that was here long before any of us arrived. It will still be here long after we pass through.
