Publisher: Brock Hampton Press; (1998).The Native American population is a diverse and fascinating group of cultures. Widely scattered across the vast North American continent, they evolved into a number of different tribes, each with its own distinctive language and customs. What these numerous tribes have in common is a deep bond with nature, a profound respect for their surroundings, and a powerful love of story-telling. Indeed America’s folkloric tradition has been immeasurably enriched by tales handed down among the Native Americans over the centuries; tales which celebrate their vision of a rich and fruitful land where unique traditions and beliefs were allowed to flourish. “Native American Myths and Legends” is a dazzling collection of the most enthralling myths and fables, vividly retold by an intriguing array of paintings and etchings. Celebrating the powerful mythological tradition of the Native American people, this book brings the myths and legends to life in a powerful tribute to the romance, the wisdom and the extraordinary beauty of the myriad cultures, who unique interpretation of life and the world around us has such timeless appeal. CONDITION: VERY GOOD. Unread (?) but NOT entirely unblemished hardcover with (facsimile/replacement) dustjacket. Brockhampton Press/Caxton Editions (1999) 128 pages. Book seems to have only been flipped through once or twice. The inside of the book is pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound, seemingly unread (there's no real reading wear to the book, we're basically assuming that the book was flipped through a few times based on the relative firmness of the binding). The book came to us without a dustjacket (evidently the original was lost or discarded), so photo-copying the dustjacket from another identical book in our library, we produced a full-color replacement printed on high-gloss photographic quality paper, enclosed in a mylar cover. Beneath the dustjacket the printing, illustrated covers evidence moderate edge and corner shelfwear, but no significant blemishes other that the fact that there's a little chip (neatly repaired) in the plasticine covering at the front corner of the spine head. Oversized books like this tend to get dragged across and bumped into book shelves as they are shelved and re-shelved, and so it is not uncommon to see accelerated edge and corner shelfwear the covers). Given the shelf wear to the covers and the fact the book only possessing a replacement/facsimile dustjacket, it might lack the "sex appeal" of a "shelf trophy". Nonetheless for those not concerned with whether the book will or will not enhance their social status or intellectual reputation, it is an otherwise clean and virtually unread (seemingly only lightly browsed) copy of a rather difficult to find (in superior condition) title. Satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. In stock, ready to ship. No disappointments, no excuses. PROMPT SHIPPING! HEAVILY PADDED, DAMAGE-FREE PACKAGING! #1514.1f.

PUBLISHER REVIEW: The Native American myths and legends in this book were retold by O.B. Duane who was born in Ireland in 1965 and educated both in Dublin and London. She completed her BA and MLitt at Trinity College, Dublin, specializing in Anglo-Irish literature. She moved to London permanently in 1989, where she now works as a writer and editor. She is author of a number of titles in the “Myths and Legends” Series including “African Myths and Legends”. PROFESSIONAL REVIEW: With a valuable bibliography, and a spelling and pronunciation guide, this is the reference work for anyone who wishes to study the history and beliefs of the Native Americans. Brings Native American myths and legends to life in a powerful tribute to the romance, the wisdom and the extraordinary beauty of the myriad cultures. Highly recommended reading. READER REVIEWS: Interesting and factual, this book is a collection of Native American myths and fables, retold and illustrated by an intriguing array of paintings and etchings. Profusely illustrated. I enjoyed reading this book and it opened my eyes – I learned a lot. I would recommend this book to others interested in creation and alternate explanations for the world around us. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world – but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
