The trickster; a study in American Indian mythology by Paul Radin( Book )
52 editions published between 1955 and 2015 in English and held by 1,883 libraries worldwide
Few myths have so wide a distribution as the one, known by the name of the Trickster, which we are presenting here. For few can we so confidently assert that they belong to the oldest expressions of mankind. Few other myths have persisted with their fundamental content unchanged. The Trickster myth is found in clearly recognizable form among the simplest aboriginal tribes and among the complex. We encounter it among the ancient Greeks, the Chinese, the Japanese and in the Semitic world. Many of the Trickster's traits were perpetuated in the figure of the mediaeval jester, and have survived right up to the present day in the Punch-and-Judy plays and in the clown. Although repeatedly combined with other myths and frequently drastically reorganized and reinterpreted, its basic plot seems always to have succeeded in reasserting itself. ... The following paper is the presentation of one such Trickster myth, that found among the Siouan-speaking Winnebago of central Wisconsin and eastern Nebraska. -- Prefactory note (p. xxiii)

Primitive man as philosopher by Paul Radin( Book )
57 editions published between 1927 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 1,389 libraries worldwide
A classic of anthropology, this volume takes readers directly into an array of aboriginal cultures--Winnebago, Oglala Sioux, Maori, Banda, Batak, the Buin of Melanesia, Tahitian and Hawaiian, Zuni, and Ewe--to explore their belief systems. It examines the conditioning of thought that each society practices upon its members and the freedom of individuals to deviate from the group and to effect change. The text offers intensive discussion of methodological problems, such as determining cultural standards, with a firm basis in firsthand data (much of it obtained by the author). Fascinating subjects include cultural views of the purpose of life, marital relations, freedom of thought, death, resignation, the nature of reality, the structure of the ego, human personality, the systemization of ideas, and concepts of deities, in addition to a brilliant interpretation of myth and symbolism in terms of their meaning to each culture

Crashing Thunder : the autobiography of an American Indian by Sam Blowsnake( Book )
28 editions published between 1926 and 2007 in English and held by 734 libraries worldwide
"Paul Radin, one of America's first and most reputable professional anthropologists, lived among the Winnebago Indians for years, and for years he tried without success to interview the notorious younger son of the Blow Snake family, Crashing Thunder. At last Crashing Thunder agreed to tell Radin his life story, one that Radin calls "a true rake's progress." Speaking through Radin, Crashing Thunder tells of his childhood, stories of Winnebago gods, his appetite for women and beer, and his extraordinary friends and relatives. He also tells of his redemption through his new religion, peyote. To enhance understanding of the autobiography and its place in anthropology and literature, a new foreword, appendix, and index have been prepared by eminent Native American scholar, Arnold Krupat."--Jacket
