About the Author
Edward Winslow Gifford, 1887 - 1959, devoted his life studying California Indian ethnography as a professor of University of California from 1920 to 1954. He was born in Oakland, California. He developed the University’s Museum of Anthropology into a major U.S. institution with its major field research and collections.
“The fourteen stories presented in this collection were secured during 1913 and 1914 among the Central Sierra Miwok of Tuolumne County, California. Three, which are exceedingly brief, were told by William Fuller of Soulsbyville. The remaining eleven were obtained from Thomas Williams of Jamestown . . .”
