He Is Dug Up.
Bennett, Ruth; And Others
The life of a primary mythical character of the Hupa culture unfolds in this story, which was translated from a version told by an 82-year-old Hupa. The introduction summarizes the story plot explaining that the hero of the story is born under strange circumstances (dug up by a girl who ignores the warning not to dig potatoes with two leaves) and deserted by all except his grandmother, but possesses spiritual powers that enable him to acquire wealth and therefore to marry and have high social status. The story is presented in Hupa and English on facing pages that are illustrated with pen and ink drawings and borders of Indian geometric designs. (JHZ)
