THE LIFE AND TRADITIONS OF THE RED MAN;, Nicolar, Joseph
2 Nicolar, Joseph THE LIFE AND TRADITIONS OF THE RED MAN;
Fredericton, N.B. Saint Annes Point Press 1979 0920762085 / 9780920762080 Reprint of 1893 Edition Hard Cover Very Good No D.j As Issued Hardcover 
pp., xvi, 150, port. frontis., light faded to spine. A reprint of the 1893 Bangor, Maine, C.H. Glass first and only other printing with an Introduction by James D. Wherry. The original is one of the rarest of the few titles by Wabanaki authors. Nicolar was perhaps the best educated Penobscot of his time.[1827-1894] He attended schools in Rockland, Warren, Brewer, and Old Town, Maine. He contributed news items and brief articles to a few local newspapers and also wrote a column for the Old Town Herald. Most of the original 1893 printng was destroyed by a fire at the office of the printers in Bangor. This edition [1979] was 500 copies only and is now difficult to find. This is one of only 56 copies bound in hard cover. I know because I published it. Joseph Nicolar's "The Life and Traditions of the Red Man" tells the story of his people from the first moments of creation to the earliest arrivals and eventual settlement of Europeans. Self-published by Nicolar in 1893, this is one of the few sustained narratives in English composed by a member of an Eastern Algonquian-speaking people during the nineteenth century. At a time when Native Americans' ability to exist as Natives was imperiled, Nicolar wrote his book in an urgent effort to pass on Penobscot cultural heritage to subsequent generations of the tribe and to reclaim Native Americans' right to self-representation. This extraordinary work weaves together stories of Penobscot history, precontact material culture, feats of shamanism, and ancient prophecies about the coming of the white man. An elder of the Penobscot Nation in Maine and the grandson of the Penobscots' most famous shaman-leader, Old John Neptune, Nicolar brought to his task a wealth of traditional knowledge. "The Life and Traditions of the Red Man" has not been widely available until now, largely because Nicolar passed away just a few months after the printing of the book was completed. Size: Sm.8 vo.
