The study of legends has long been a critical component of cultural anthropological analysis.  In Native American Legends of the Southeast, George E. Lankford has compiled and analyzed a collection of unique and rare legends that will continue to appeal to scholars and students of Native American culture and the study of legends in general.

George E. Lankford is Professor Emeritus at Lyon College where he served as endowed professor and chair of Social Sciences. He has authored numerous books and articles, including Looking for Lost Lore: Studies in Folklore, Ethnology, and Iconography.
