253 pp, 7 5/8" H. Colour plates. "First published in 1928 (this) is the work of the distinguished Canadian ethnologist, the late Dr. Marius Barbeau. A prolific writer whose contribution to our knowledge of Indian and French-Canadian folklore, arts and crafts is unsurpassed, Barbeau offers in this book a sympathetic and dramatic portrayal of a vanquished race in conflict with itself. Based on the facts of a serious disturbance among the Indians of the Upper Skeena River in 1886, it is the story of Kamalmuk and Sunbeams, husband and wife, separated by opposing ambitions and the ambivalence of the Indian's attraction to the benefits of the white man's civilization and his revulsion against its excesses. Barbeau weaves into his interpretation of Temlaham, the ritual of authentic tribal customs and the expressive but poetic language of a people in anguish." Faint tiny foxing marks on edges of textblock, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very small glue stain on rear board. Dust jacket is price clipped, slight fading to spine color, very light wear and wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, one small tear archivally taped.
