Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This monograph deals with the geographical distribution of
past and present Yurok settlements and lists of place names. Several thousand such names
are listed and their origin explained. The topographical features and settlement patterns
of various localities are illustrated with maps and plates. The author, however, did not
confine himself solely to geography. There are also informative discussions of the Yurok
language, ethnogeography, cosmology, material culture, house names and personal names,
property system, and mythology. The material in this study was gathered by both the author
and A. L. Kroeber on field trips to the Yurok country.
