The same author, in speaking of the internal evidences of authenticity contained in the Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the Kichés, uses the following words, which apply equally well to these Cherokee formulas: To one familiar with native American myths, this one bears undeniable marks of its aboriginal origin. Its frequent puerilities and inanities, its generally low and coarse range of thought and expression, its occasional loftiness of both, its strange metaphors and the prominence of strictly heathen names and potencies, bring it into unmistakable relationship to the true native myth.

This book is one of the better books on the history of the Cherokee. It is by far the best history that I have read concerning the cherokee. I purchased a copy twenty years or so ago and have used it for research and reference ever since. I purchased this copy for my son and his wife to use as a reference when teaching classes. I am from upstate South Carolina. All of the upstate of South Carolina once belonged to the Cherokee. Many of my relatives were cherokee or at least part Cherokee, and my family and I try to keep their history alive. This book is one of the better sources of information about the Cherokee to pass on to make sure future generations remember them.

Purchase was for a gift, and the receiver was thrilled with the book and was looking forward to reading from cover to cover as I did many years ago. This book is absolutely the best book available to the public on the history of the Cherokee people, their relationships to the Creator, to one another and natural world which they lived in. James Mooney depicted the Cherokee people in great factual detail as well as the expressions of the great humanity of the Cherokee people and culture. Our present society and culture could benefit from such examples as those of the Cherokee people as was so aptly recorded by Mr. Mooney.
