Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Boas, Teit, Hill-Tout, Barbeau, Swanton, Jenness, the luminaries of field research in British Columbia, are discussed here in A Guide to B.C. Indian Myth and Legend, and their work in Indian folklore evaluated. Other scholars, amateurs and Native informants of the past and present are given ample consideration, making this book a comprehensive survey of myth collecting in B.C. The aim is to reveal the true extent of this neglected body of world literature, and to begin to sort out the more valuable texts from those damaged in transmission. A Guide to B.C. Indian Myth and Legend is a valuable reference tool for beginning or advanced students of anthropology, and an absorbing look at the research process itself.

Synopsis:

This survey of myth-collecting in British Columbia evaluates the work of luminaries such as Boas, Teit, Hill-Tout, Barbeau and Swanton.

Synopsis:

A behind-the-scenes look at the motives and attitudes of ethnographers and Native informants in British Columbia.
