He wears brown deerskin leggins with long soft fringes on either side, and tiny beaded moccasins on his feet.
His long black hair is parted in the middle and wrapped with red, red bands.
Each round braid hangs over a small brown ear and falls forward over his shoulders.
He even paints his funny face with red and yellow, and draws big black rings around his eyes.
He wears a deerskin jacket, with bright colored beads sewed tightly on it.
Iktomi dresses like a real Dakota brave.
In truth, his paint and deerskins are the best part of him—
if ever dress is part of man or fairy.
Iktomi is a wily fellow.
His hands are always kept in mischief.
He prefers to spread a snare rather than to earn the smallest thing with honest hunting.
he laughs outright with wide open mouth when some simple folk are caught in a trap, sure and fast.
He never dreams another lives so bright as he.
Often his own conceit leads him hard against the common sense of simpler people.
Poor Iktomi cannot help being a little imp.
And so long as he is a naughty fairy, he cannot find a single friend.
No one helps him when he is in trouble.

Why is it locked?
We employ a team of editors who ensure that our technology has properly converted each book into its new Literal format.
We are also a scrappy young startup looking to make sure that we spend our resources wisely.
This means that in some cases we only edit and publish small portions of a book to begin with.
This lets us save on costs and helps focus our efforts on completing only the books that paying customers actually want to read.
