Badger and Coyote Were Neighbors: Melville Jacobs on Northwest Indian Myths and Tales (Northwest Readers)
William R. Seaburg
An anthropologist and folklorist, Melville Jacobs (1902-71) made it his life work to preserve and interpret the fast-disappearing languages and traditions of the Indian peoples of Oregon and Washington. This volume presents an introduction to Jacobs's seminal research and provides an engaging selection of the myths and tales that he painstakingly collected.
