Marc Seahmer. NEAR FINE IN FINE DUST JACKET. INSCRIBED/SIGNED by author on dedication page. This collection is translated from the native language, and is based on collections by Haruo Aoki, Deward E. Walker, Jr., Archie Phinney, and Herbert Spinden. It is argued here that Nez Perce myth "conforms largely to its own rules...", is "overwhelmingly conservative, [reflecting] few of the massive changes that have taken place in Nez Perce culture over the last several centuries, and may be viewed primarily as an accumulation of archaic elements and patterns from prehistoric times..."
