The American Indian lives in a world peopled by good and evil spirits. The moon, the stars, the winds, the rain, and the seasons are all living in his imagination. These are the natural phenomena that govern his way of life and make his religion manifest in his daily pursuits. Among Some Indian tribes are elfin people known as Puk-Wudjis. In this charming story for boys and girls these tiny creatures help a little Indian girl through her troubles. Their puckish tricks and kindly ways will endear them to young readers as the more familiar leprechauns, brownies, and gnomes of the white man's legends.

The frontispiece is Chikeeta, in full color; the remainder of the illustrations are detailed in black & white.
