DESCRIPTION:

More than half a century after his death, Grenville Goodwin continues to be regarded as one of the most enigmatic and romantic figures in American anthropology.

From the Inside Flap When the anthropologist Grenville Goodwin died in 1940 at the age of 32, he had published several papers and one book, "Myths and Tales of the White Mountain Apache," and had already achieved a stature that has only continued to grow. As these writings also show, Goodwin was powerfully drawn to Apache spirituality and became steeped in their sacred knowledge. It includes selections from his field notes, diaries, and letters, along with those of his wife Jan and other family members. His simple description of a day in the life of an Apache family captures the expression of this spirituality in the rhythms of everyday life, whether greeting the rising sun, curing an injury, plowing the earth, or simpl
