Indigenous peoples and the collaborative stewardship of nature : knowledge binds and institutional conflicts by Anne Ross( )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation of the value of collaborative natural resource management partnerships between Indigenous communities and government agencies. Using case studies from Australia, the United States, Thailand and India, the authors examine why Indigenous peoples and their knowledge about natural systems are often denied a place at the natural resources management table. A range of management options that claim to have integrated Indigenous peoples and their knowledge into mainstream natural resources management are investigated. The book has a particularly focus on 'co-management' agreements, and the authors demonstrate that such frameworks perpetuate many of the barriers between scientific and Indigenous ways of thinking. An innovative, alternative example of co-management, the Indigenous Stewardship Model, developed in a North American Native context, is outlined. This model has the potential to transcend some of the usual barriers to equal partnerships in natural resources management

Pagan Celtic Britain: studies in iconography and tradition by Anne Ross( Book )

51 editions published between 1967 and 1996 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although some aspects of pre-Roman and pre-Christian beliefs remain shrouded in mystery, the author of this comprehensive, profusely illustrated volume contends that neither the Roman invasion of Britain nor the coming of Christianity eliminated pagan religious practice. Dr Anne Ross writes from wide experience of living in Celtic-speaking communities where she has traced vernacular tradition. She employs archaeological and anthropological evidence, as well as folklore, to provide broad insight into the early Celtic world

The folklore of the Scottish Highlands by Anne Ross( Book )

20 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The richness of the folklore of the Highlands of Scotland is due, in part, to the fact that so much of it has been handed down by oral tradition. It is characteristic of the Gaelic spirit: their love of words, their love of nature, and perhaps above all, their love of their homeland. Anne Ross, a Celtic scholar who is also fluent in Gaelic, has lived and worked in the Highlands, which enabled her to collect information first hand and assess the veracity of material already published. In The Folklore of the Scottish Highlands she portrays the beliefs and customs of Scottish Gaelic society including seasonal customs, the famous waulking songs, the Highland belief in seers and second sight, omens and taboos, witchcraft and the Evil Eye, death rituals, and many more Scottish Highland traditions and beliefs. The folklore of the Highlands is unique, fascinating, and as Ann Ross proves, very much alive"--Jacket flap

Druids : preachers of immortality by Anne Ross( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and Galician and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Druidism was the religion of the Celts and the Druids themselves were all-powerful, taking precedence over the Celtic kings: Over and above the evidence of classical texts and of archaeology, the richest source of information about the Druids is the vernacular material from Ireland and Wales. It is the author's unparalleled familiarity with the Gaelic texts, and her ability to see Druidism through Celtic eyes, that marks out this study from earlier books and strips away modern myths about the Druids."--Jacket

Folklore of Wales by Anne Ross( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wales is a Celtic country and the Celts have always treasured oral learning and recitation. Indeed they have a passion for committing facts to memory rather than relying on the written world. So it is no surprise, as we can see from Anne Ross's study, that Welsh folklore and story-telling is so rich and varied." "In addition to examining the part played by the medieval church in this oral tradition, individual chapters cover legends associated with place-names; calendar customs; giants and monsters; omens and second sight; witches, ghosts and fairies; supernatural birds and animals; folk healing and herbal remedies." "The landscape is studded with the remains of ancient monuments, which are seen as the creation of gods and heroes. Every lake had its legend, whether it be inhabited by a grim, monstrous afanc, or by a beautiful, enchanted maiden, or maybe harbours a drowned settlement where the bell still tolls to warn of approaching storms. Giants stalk the land, while fairies can be dangerous, hostile and demanding propitiation. Omens of potential marriage partners were avidly sought by girls, while ghostly death-lights - corpse candles - could be seen moving relentlessly towards the person who was doomed to death. A whole world of the past is to be found in this rich treasure house of inherited lore."--Jacket

Celtic civilization by Jean Markale( Book )

3 editions published between 1967 and 1975 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A cornerstone of western civilization and the major source of its social, political, and literary values, Celtic civilization occupied the whole of western Europe for more than a millenium and, unlike the Middle Eastern forerunners of the Greco-Roman world, is still alive today. Historians have tended to accord the Celts a place of minor significance in comparison to the Romans when, in fact, the shamanic, mythical, and spiritual traditions of the Western world have their roots in Celtic culture. Regarding myth as an indispensable branch of history, Markale has thoroughly explored Celtic mythology to reveal the culture that gave rise to it. "The Celts, " one of the most comprehensive treatments of this subject ever written, firmly aligns the Celtic peoples as the primary European precursor to Greco-Roman sovereignty, restoring Celtic culture to its true importance in the development of European civilization. The new historical vision that emerges is both convincing and exciting
