Octavo in green cloth with gilt spine and cover titles; device of the BAE on front boards worn, Else Fine. Signature of Professor David Aberle on the front paste-down. Aberle’s career spanned decades with the University of British Columbia. Widely published, his most notable research and works were about the Navajo peoples.

The present study not only collects numerous tales and myths, but reproduces chants and songs in translation, and figures such as that of a Hogan. (Figure 13). Copiously footnoted. A desirable and important source of material for the study of the Navaho (Navajo) traditions.

“In time to come my people will have forgotten their early way of life unless they learn it from white men’s books. So you must write down all that I will tell you; and you must have it made into a book that coming generations may know this truth.” [cf Hand B215]
