Even More Legends of the Elders is the final volume of a collection of four Legends titles. This time, Drs. Friesen depict Native cultural legends in relation to historical events, as well as narratives that explain the natural world, thereby showing a unique point of view… Indigenous peoples are well known for being in touch with the natural world and their legends regarding how and why things are the way they are reflect this notion. Colored with the richness of Aboriginal culture Even More Legends of the Elders completes the Legends of the Elders series and honors the symbolism of four in Native culture.  
Legends Books Series:
Each book, authored by southern Alberta writers, John and Virginia Friesen, retells many interesting stories form the Aboriginal community and in doing so offers readers a privileged look into the past, to a time when the stories of the Elders were accepted for what they really were, lessons about life. …an ideal gift item for any child and every adult who loves to read…thought provoking tales and legends…Although the Friesens’ books carry just about every type of legend, they don’t cross the line when it comes to Indigenous spirituality.
