Description

Penobscot Man is an ethnographic classic written by an anthropologist trained to reconstruct traditional Native American, or Indian, lifeways. When Frank Speck began his fieldwork early in the twentieth century, practitioners of the new field of anthropology witnessed the low point of native populations. Once populous groups had vanished; others were so decimated that only remnants of their traditional behavior remained. The reconstruction of lifestyles, or cultures, prior to the radical changes caused by European contact constituted a major research goal. This book is a representative example of that agenda.”
