Franz Boas (1858-1942), geographer, linguist, physical anthropologist and ethnologist, is considered the father of modern North American anthropology. The 1895 German publication of this book gathered together in a single volume his earliest research in British Columbia and now, for the first time, is made available in English. Extensively annotated and footnoted, Claude Levi-Strauss describes it as one of the richest collections of mythological text available.

An extraordinary work... awkward to read because the stories are from an oral culture and are experienced as text by the reader... many are beguiling and intriguing... certainly makes its way on to my 'to re-read' list.
