A Cycle of Myths: Indian Myths from Southeast Alaska by John E. Smelcer

Regular price $ 12.95

Folklore. Mythology. With an introduction by the editor and a map of Alaska Native Peoples. This "collection of twenty myths is an excellent introduction into the world of southeast Alaska Native cultures." (--Dr. Alexandr Vaschenko) John Smelcer has dedicated his professional life to recording the traditionally oral tales of Alaskan Native peoples; his latest book contains narrative myths and legends from the Eyak, Haida, Tlingit, and Tsimshian Peoples of Southeast Alaska. Thoroughly enchanting as literature and crucially important, along with THE RAVEN AND THE TOTEM and ALASKA NATIVE ORAL NARRATIVE LITERATURE by the same editor, as a reference resource, A CYCLE OF MYTHS "keenly captures the mystical world of Alaska Native legend and lore--a world in which the supernatural is natural." (--Tobin Morrison)
