Myths and Tales of the White Mountain Apache

The University of Arizona Press

These 57 tales (with seven variants) gathered between 1931 and 1936 include major cycles dealing with Creation and Coyote, minor tales, and additional stories derived from Spanish and Mexican tradition. The tales are of two classes: holy tales said by some to expalin the origin of ceremonies and holy powers, and tales which have to do with the creation of the earth, the emergence, the flood, the slaying of monsters, and the origin of customs. As Goodwin was the first anthropologist to work with the White Mountain Apache, his insights remain a primary souce on this people.
