Coyote Was Going There: Indian Literature of the Oregon Countryby Jarold Ramsey
Synopses & Reviews
The material cause of this book is a Central Oregon childhood spent around Indians and devoted to hunting for the artifacts of their ancestors, the efficient cause is in the works of the late Melville Jacobs.
The vivid imagination, robust humor, and profound sense of place of the Indians of Oregon are revealed in this anthology, which gathers together hitherto scattered and often inaccessible legends originally transcribed and translated by scholars such as Archie Phinney, Melville Jacobs, and Franz Boas.
