IKTOMI AND THE BOULDER, Paul Goble, NY: Orchard Books, 1988, 32 pp, 0-53105760-7
The Lakota spider-trickster Iktomi gets in trouble as, with the aid of some bats, he tries to defeat a huge boulder (which actually represents Tunka, the sacred Rock). The bats are changed into small stones, which is why the Plains are covered with many small stones today. The same method of italicized storytller questions as asides throughout the story.
