    $24.95 CAD

    Northwest Coast native oral narrative is recorded in these nine stories told by Gandl, a blind Haida elder, to John R Swanton, an anthropological field worker in 1900.

    Bringhurst has brought these stories back to life through his dedication to ethnographic, linguistic and cultural anthropological research.  Footnotes and photographs identify the places, foods and material culture and provide a further depth to appreciating the cultural heritage of the Haida.
