In this volume you will find 24 Koryak folk tales of:
  • The Mice Girls,
  • Of Whale Festivals,
  • The Ermine People,
  • Fox Woman,
  • Fish Woman,
  • Monster Man,
  • Bumblebees,
  • Shellfish-Girls plus many more.

Unlike European folklore, these stories do not have the dramatic turns of Western folk-lore. There is no Cinderella nor a Puss in Boots. The struggle for survival is the perpetual theme, and no wonder, for the narrators dwell in a remote and hostile landscape.

Because of their geographic location, Koryak Folklore has more in common with the lore of the Tlingit, Tsimshian, and other Northwest Coast Amerindians suggesting a broad cultural area stretching from current day Kamchatka across the Bering Strait into Alaska, Canada and Washington State. It is in these cultures that the mythology centres around the supernatural shaman Quikil (Big-Raven) who was the first man and protector of the Koryak and who features prominently in this volume.

So, if you enjoy Native American folklore then this little known volume will be a welcome addition to your library.
