Description:

First Edition. Previous owner bookplate on inside back cover. Price clipped DJ (in mylar) with light shelf wear to edges and small nick at top spine edge. The extraordinary oral literature of the Warao Indians is full of surrealistic adventures, fantastic spirit beings, scheming animals, and sly, humorous stories of human weaknesses and passions. The narratives are also vivid documentation of Warrao daily life, which revolves around the dugout canoes in which they travel, sleep, cook, eat, play and finally are buried. Two hundred and nine of these tales are brought together here. Bookseller Inventory # 0015956
