Book Description: Crown Publishers, Inc., 1985. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Lightly rubbed. 1985 Hard Cover. 210 pp. "This is a highly unusual novel: written by an American, it is set in the Sudan of several hundred years ago, interspersed with numerous verses sung by djeli (bard-historians), but unified by a central theme of the eternal struggle between providential fate and random chance. The hero, Numekeba, a blacksmith turned quester, undergoes varied adventures, including a descent into the land of the dead and metamorphosis into a dog. The book should be appreciated by younger readers, who will enjoy Numekeba's valiant exploits and the repeated appearances of the wizard Etchuba, Owner of the Red Powder, but it will also appeal to adults. Courlander's vivid imagination and careful control of his exotic material make this ``created epic'' a rich and intriguing work.". Bookseller Inventory # 1517305

Pronunciation Guide. ~ Book is clean, tight, no interior markings, light foxing on top of text block only. Dust jacket has light wear at head/heel of spine and a light water mark at heel of spine. Now in a clear archival cover. ~~ "The Epic Story of the Hopi Indians as Preserved in Their Legends and Traditions." Courlander, an authority on the oral literature of tribal cultures, visited the Hopis and gathered their oral wisdom, legends, myths and recollections, which he argues is more revealing of the values and motivations of the people than are archeological finds. He recounts these narrations here and discusses the underlying reasons for the migration of the ancient Hopis, which was both to find a locale not only suitable to sustain them, but equally important, to allow them to live in spiritual harmony with nature. He explains "the Hopi Way," which includes concepts such as prophecy and fulfillment, continuity, moral values, and the close relationship and natural balance between and among men and nature.

Believe or do not believe, I cannot help it. There is more to the world, visible and invisble, than I every imagined. We know that the voudouns are here, or in Guinee, or under the water even if we are not aware of them until they come into a person's head. And we know that the ancestors reside somewhere even if they do not often speak to us. Bondieu, the sky god, who is greater than all things in the world, is invisible but is he not there all the time ? You cannot see a baka unless he wishes to be seen, and a lougaro looks like an ordinary person until he goes out at night to do whatever evil thing is in his mind. Most of the world is not seen at all except when it wants to be seen. We cannot be certain about anything. This is what I learned on my journey while searching for my brother." In the Bordeaux Narrative a distingusied novelist and scholar of oral traditions brings to life in fictional form the frequently terrifying (and sometimes reassuring ) supernatural world of the back~country peasants of Haiti. The story is set in the nineteenth century. It tells of Dosu Bordeaux's quest to find his brother, who has been captured, reduced to a zombie~like state, and put to work as a slave on a remote mountain plantation.The narrative brings into play the voudouns (dieties or spirits of traditional Afro~Haitian religous belief), the need for constant placation of the vodouns, trances in which the dieties enter the heads of their devotees, and the transference of human souls or spirits form one person to another. In addition to these phenomena of religious belief, there are endless kinds of secular supernatural forces to contend with ~ bakas (demons of different forms), bizangos (supernatural beings in the form of wild dogs that prey on humans), and ouangas (destructiove magic). This marvelous tale will captivate any reader and give a sense of the Haitian peasant's perpetual concern about the world that surrounds him. It will also be of special interest to students of comparative religion, anthropology and folklore. Bookseller Inventory # 4161102
