Yurok Narratives


By Robert Spott & A.L. Kroeber. A reprint of the original 1942 University of California, Berkeley publication, printed by the Trinidad Museum Society. Robert Spott was Dr. Kroeber's Yurok collaborator on the histories and myths recorded in this book. "Intelligent, sensitive, literate, and of high social rank, Robert Spott came of age on the battlefields of World War I. Hard-working, knowledgeable, and active in his culture, he earned the respect of his people through an era of cultural assimilation."
