I am a writer doing research for a children's book about Native American
History. My book, titled, "Before the Storm," describes Native American life
before Christopher Columbus and details the vibrant societies that existed
here long before Europeans arrived. It will be published by Facts on File,
Inc. in 1997.  I am interested in finding any legends, accounts, or stories
about two topics: daily life before Columbus and descriptions of first
contact between various tribes and early European explorers. I'm also hoping
to find individuals or organizations that study precontact arts and
artifacts.  If you have any information or sources that might help me locate
this information, I would appreciate any assistance.  I can be reached at Thank you for any help you can give.
