Summary, etc.: "Lewis Spence offers insight into what is unique and distinctive about the Native-American cultures and Peoples. Part Ethnography, part history, and part literary study. This collection is accessible to academic scholars and mainstream readers alike. Spence presents the distinct cultural and social differences between tribal groups as he examines hunting, costumes, and the afterlife. Spence explores the native identity, life and environment, and at the same time draws connections to similar European Motifs and Ideologies."--
