Acheii Bahane': Naaki Gone' Yiltsiligii II = Grandfather Stories: Volume II.
At one time all Navaho stories were handed down from generation to generation by word of mouth. Some stories were recorded and then trnsalated into English. In the process of translation, the stories often times lost their meaning. To avoid this, the second volume of "Grandfather Stories," which were told by elders living in the vicinity of Rough Rock and Black Mountain, has been written in Navaho and then translated into English. The six stories, which may be used for supplemental reading material, are about game animals that were taken from the people, the antelope hunt, an escape from the Spanish, a close encounter with wolves, cattle, and a snow storm.
