Seller ID   27744

527 pp, 9" H. B&w illustrations. "Native American oral literature has often been presented, wrongly, as a sea of anonymous folktales. Here instead are the works of unforgettable individuals: the blind poet Ghandl, the crippled master myth-spinner Skaay, the cagey old historian Kilxhawgins, and other Haida authors who speak with crystal clarity though they speak from a vanished time." Includes the following Appendices: Haida Spelling and Pronunciation; Haida as a Written Language; Spelling of Other Native American Languages; The Structure of Skaay's 'Raven Travelling'; Haida Village Names; A Short Pronouncing Glossary of Haida People and Places. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - soft crease at top edge of rear cover, moderate bump at bottom of spine, very minor edge wear.
