AUTHOR

Bringhurst, Robert

SUMMARY

The Haida world is a misty archipelago a hundred stormy miles off the coasts of British Columbia and Alaska. For more than a thousand years before the Europeans came, a great culture flourished on these islands. In 1900 and 1901 the linguist and ethnographer John Swanton took dictation from the last traditional Haida-speaking storytellers, poets, and historians. Robert Bringhurst worked for many years with these manuscripts, and here he brings them to life in the English language.A Story as Sharp as a Knifebrings a lifetime of passion and a broad array of skills--humanistic, scientific, and poetic--to focus on a rich and powerful tradition that the world has long ignored.Bringhurst, Robert is the author of 'Story as Sharp as a Knife: The Classical Haida Mythtellers and Their World' with ISBN 9780803213142 and ISBN 080321314X.
