James Mooney's History, Myths & Sacred Formulas of the Cherokees Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1891 and 1900, Myths of the Cherokees and The Sacred Formulas of the Cherokees have been the definitive work on the customs and beliefs of the Cherokee people for decades. Now combined in a single volume, this comprehensive work details and records the history, material culture, oral tradition, language, arts, and religion of the Eastern Cherokee. Mr. Mooney lived with, ate with, even spoke with the Cherokee in their native tongue, and his work was relied upon by students of Native American culture, general readers, and many of the Cherokee people themselves. Combining various methods of research and utilizing sources from his subjects, Mooney added a new dimension to the recording of Native American history. This new edition of Mooney's two historic books features a biographical introduction by George Ellison that provides background information on Mooney's life. His insights into Mooney and the people he studied add a new dimension to our knowledge of the well-known and widely respected anthropologist and his career.
