Despite our new technologies, there’s just something about a book, with its striking cover and pages you can turn forward. And pages you can turn back, of course, if you wish to look at something again. Or pages you can pause at and ponder; perhaps a line takes your breath away, or a simple phrase. That’s the thing about a book: you decide the pace. You can hold it, bath with it and lovingly write your name in it – in fact, it’s a bit like a marriage. If you like truth you can touch, this is the place.

The Orpheus Motif in North America: The Comanche tradition – To give the reader a general idea of the form taken by the Orpheus tradition in North America, I reproduce the version of the Comanche Indians, here published for the first time. It was communicated to me orally by the late Dr Ralph Linton, who noted it down in the course of his field-studies among the Comanche (1933). Particular interest attaches to the Comanche narrative, for it is the first recorded Orpheus tradition from the more easterly Shoshonean groups. No account is given of it in Wallace and Hoebel’s Comanche monograph, which is otherwise a valuable source for the religion and folklore of this tribe. Read here
