The mountain chant a Navajo ceremony by Washington Matthews ( )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Mountain Chant is a nine-day Navajo healing ceremony, one of several major rites undertaken only in winter. Aside from curing disease, it brings rain and invokes the unseen powers for general benefit. Though perhaps practiced less often now than better-known ceremonies such as the Night Chant, it is by no means forgotten." "Fully faithful to the original published by Washington Matthews over a century ago, this edition contains the story of the wandering hero upon whose exploits the Mountain Chant is based, a description of each of the nine ceremonial days, and original song texts and translations."--Jacket
Navaho legends ( )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in 1897, this sensitive translation by Washington Matthews (1843-1905) contains an extensive version of the Origin Legend plus two other tales. These richly detailed legends remain among the most complete sources of Navajo cultural, ritual, and ceremonial information." "This edition is fully faithful to the original, containing Matthews's introduction, extensive notes, interlinear prayer translations, and musical notations, plus a note on modern orthography by Robert W. Young." "Washington Matthews, army major and surgeon, was based in the Southwest. He was one of the earliest recorders of Navajo culture."--BOOK JACKET
