This book is a classic, now out of print but still available. All are adapted for children from primary sources. I have used these stories with 3rd, 5th, and 6th grade students. They are traditional teaching tales in the form of myths. Each reflects the physical environment of the storyteller, and teach two lessons. The first has social significance and the second explains something in the natural world of the storyteller. The sister volume Star Tales: North American Indian Stories About The Stars does the same thing for select celestial bodies. All are essentially creation myths.
