Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Harold Courlander, a noted folklorist, presents in this work "…traditional accounts of epic events and adventures in the life of Hopi clans and villages, from legendary to historical times. The setting of these various adventures and events is not the Southwest as we know it today, but a vast and largely unpeopled wilderness in which clans and families wandered in search of a final living place, and in search of their collective identity" (back cover)
