Tales from the Dena: Indian Stories from the Tanana, Koyukuk, and Yukon Riversby Dale de De Armond
Forty-one Alaskan Indian tales, transcribed in 1935 from the narrators' own words, are included in this collection beautifully illustrated with wood engravings by Alaska artist Dale DeArmond. The exploits of the roguish Crow and the intrepid Man Who Traveled Among All the Animals and People range from serious myths to slyly humorous misadventures.
Frederica de Laguna is professor emerita of anthropology at Bryn Mawr College. Among her many publications is Travels Among the Dena: Exploring Alaskaís Yukon Valley, which re-creates the extraordinary scientific expedition on which the stories in Tales from the Dena were gathered.
