This book is part of the same series (The Jessup North Pacific Expedition) as Chukchee Mythology, which was posted earlier at sacred-texts. All of the notes on that index page apply to this text as well. Also, Part III — Text is not presented here as it is printed in the original language with only interlinear translation. This amounts to about 3pp. of deleted material.
