Tsoqalem: A weird Indian tale of the Cowichan monster : a ballad
Citizen Printing & Pub, Vancouver, B.C. 1918 - Signed B00088GFMQ Signed and inscribed by author, dated 1918, atop first blank leaf. 66 pages. Accepted by the Royal Society of Canada as part of their Proceedings, 1918. "Tsoqalem, according to the Indians, was a real historic character, a member of the Cowichan tribe, a Vancouver Island division of that linguistic group of the Salish stock known to us under the term Halkomalem, whose habitat is and was the Lower Fraser Valley. How far the incidents of this story are literally true it is now impossible to say, as myth and fact are inextricably woven together in it; but there can be little doubt that an Indian of the character of Tsoqalem existed some generations ago among the Cowichans, and met with a tragic end at the hand of a woman, somewhat in the manner recorded in the story." - from Foreword. Front cover loose but present. Portions of backstrip missing. Age-toning to contents. Above-average external wear. Binding tender. (Amtmann 488) [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
