Jivaro : SD09( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection includes 30 English language documents, three translated from the German and three from the French, that contain specific data on the Jivaroan-speaking groups of southeastern Ecuador and adjacent Peru, including the Jivaro (Shuar, Shuara), Achuara (Atchuara, Achual), Huambisa, Aguaruna, Mayna, and the extinct Palta and Malacata. The major time span of the works in this collection ranges from about 1863 to 2003. Karsten, Stirling, Métraux, and Harner provide the most comprehensive coverage of traditional Jivaro ethnography, supplemented to a much lesser extent by the brief summaries in Simson, Farabee, Reiss, and Hermessen. War, warfare related ceremonies, including data on head-hunting and the preparation of the shrunken heads, are prominent themes in Up de Graff, Dickey, Bollert, and Bennett Ross. Other ethnographic topics of interest in this collection are: the evaluation of missionaries, their activities and other reports in Rivet, Salazar, and Harner. The influence of Western music on the traditional music of the Jivaro is discussed in Belzner. The formation and activities of the Shuar (Jivaro) Federation in lowland Ecuador are described in Salazar and Harner. Two studies of Jivaro anthropometry will be found in Meyers and Wright . The Shuar are the best known subgroup and a major focus of this collection
The expedition of Pedro de Ursúa & Lope de Aguirre in search of El Dorado and Omagua in 1560-1 : translated from Pedro Simon's sixth historical notice of the conquest of Tierra Firme by Pedro Simón( )

8 editions published between 1861 and 2017 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This 1861 volume contains a translation, preceded by an introductory essay, of a narrative by Pedro Simón (b. 1565) describing perhaps the most notorious of the many sixteenth-century expeditions of European soldiers of fortune into the unexplored areas of South America. A band of quarrelling and murderous booty-hunters, motivated by reports of the fabulous wealth of the Inca empire and legends of the golden land of El Dorado, was led by Lope de Aguirre, whose cruelty and treachery themselves became legendary
