This volume contains more stories than any other source of Pima tales, plus more of the songs and orations that accompanied a telling. It includes "The Rafter," a host of ancillary stories, numerous Coyote tales, and additional speeches tied to the narratives of ancientness. One long story, "The Feud," found only in this collection, shows similarities to the Maya Popol Vuh.Donald Bahr, a preeminent authority on the O'odham, has not only clarified the text but has also written an introduction that provides the background to the collection and analyzes Benedict's probable reasons for never having published it. He has also included a previously unpublished text by Benedict, "Figures of Speech among the Pima." O'odham Creation and Related Events represents an invaluable sourcebook of a people's oral literature as well as a tribute to a singular scholar's dedication and vision.
