Reverend Egerton Ryerson Young (1840-1909) was a teacher, Methodist missionary and author. He was born in Crosby Township, Upper Canada.

In 1863 he was received on probation in the Wesleyan Methodist Church. In Hamilton, he was called to the pastorate of the First Methodist Church. He then was invited by his superiors to become a missionary to the natives of Rupert's Land

Algonquin Indian Tales - Egerton R. We have endeavored to make it a book for all classes. Here are some old myths in new settings, and here are some, we venture to think, that have never before been seen in English dress. These will interest the student of such subjects, while the general style of the book will, we hope, make it attractive to young readers. Nanahboozhoo, the personage who occupies the principal part in these myths, is the most widely known of all those beings of supposed miraculous birth who played such prominent parts in Indian legends.

Fascinating book

I find it hard to make a solid recommendation for or against this book. It has some good points and some bad points, and they mostly seem to balance out, but there are plenty of other books on Native American tales, so it's possible to avoid this altogether and still get the stories.

The premise of this book is that there are two children, the son and daughter of missionaries, and they live in the North Country with their parents and the local tribe of Indians. The Indian Chief and the children's nurse take turns telling traditional tales to them, with a glimpse of the children's daily life between each story. The overall story is pretty readable, and non-religious for the children of missionaries--and the Indian tales are also well-told. But there is a faint air of "Western nations are Just Better" tainting the whole book. It was subtle, so I can't explain it without writing a novel, but it was present. And I don't know that the cleverness of the stories makes up for the vaguely patronizing aftertaste.

It's also written with a younger audience in mind, but since children are the people most susceptible to subtle prejudice in books, I don't know if I would share it with them.

I suppose overall I'd recommend finding another book of Indian Legends to read, although you probably won't regret reading this one if you so choose.

The book has no active table of contents, no illustrations (but the captions for them are left in the text), and is divided into 25 chapters, rather than stories, so I can't list them. Sorry.
