Book Reviews of A Bag of Bones: legends of the Wintu
Idians of Northern California
1. "At last there is a collection
of legends which have been transcribed exactly as they were told. While reading
these stories, you feel as if an inner voice is reading aloud, momentarily
satisfying the desire to have your own "grandfather" by your side." (East-West
Journal, July 15, 1975)
2. "This book is a compilation of stories and legends of the Wintu
Indians who traditionally lived in the Trinity county area. The stories were
written or told by Grant Towendolly (Wintu name - Laktcharar Tauhindauli) and
compiled and prepared for publication by Marcelle Masson.
"I found the stories themselves to make interesting reading and enjoyed
Grant's telling style.
"Besides being fun to read adventure stories, the myths provide an intimate
view of Wintu value systems, patterns of perception and thinking, kinship
systems and philosophy. The legends were also used to explain natural phenomena.
Hills. rivers and even particular rock formations held a special significance to
the Wintu who grew up in the area." (Mike Humenik, Santa
Cruz Mountains Natural History Association Newsletter, Sept/Oct 1989)
