"Morris Edward Opler based his pioneering work on the accounts of Jicarilla men and women born in the nineteenth century. In a preface he explains that the stories, sacred and profane, were meant to be told on winter nights. The book takes up the creation of the universe, the birth of Killer-of-Enemies and Child-of-the-Water, the slaying of monsters, and the Hactcin ceremony. Other myths center on games and artifacts, hunting rituals and encounters with supernatural animals, and the trickster Coyote. There are also vivid, earthy stories of foolishness, unfaithfulness, and perversion; monstrous enemies; and Dirty Boy's winning of a wife."-- Back cover

Indian village by S. C Dube( Book )

12 editions published between 1955 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Indian Village is widely considered a "classic." Since its publication, over six decades ago, the book has received immense acclaim, attaining extraordinary success, especially as the first book on a single village in post-Second World War South Asia. Indeed, the work represents a key statement of the wider shift from tribe to village in Indian anthropology, part of the movement away from studies of "isolated" groups toward writings on contemporary communities in the sociology of the subcontinent. Written in an accessible, intimate manner Indian Village needs to be understood today as a flagship endeavor of the social sciences in a young, independent India '" a study that continues to be generously cited, including as a model monograph, in the disciplines at large."--Provided by publisher
