Coyote Was Going There

Indian Literature of the Oregon Country

Edited by Jarold Ramsey
The vivid imagination, robust humor, and profound sense of place of the Indians of Oregon are revealed in this anthology, which gathers together hitherto scattered and often inaccessible legends originally transcribed and translated by scholars such as Archie Phinney, Melville Jacobs, and Franz Boas.

Reviews

"Folklore of the Northwest Indians has long been the exclusive province of the collectors, restricted to anthropologists and linguistic journals or to monographs. From such sources Jarold Ramsey has chosen representative myths and tales of the Oregon Indians (Tillamook, Coos, Nez Perce, Klamath, Paiute), offering them to the general public as literature. . . . Folklorists everywhere . . . will find this a valuable collection."—Publishers Weekly

"Coyote Was Going There . . . is really loaded with literary and historical treasure, making it one of those few works which can provide us with an option against continued ignorance. The American West will not come of age as a place for indigenous literature until we can count these stories among all the classics of mankind's expressive output."—Western American Literature
