In the Land of the Head-Hunters free pdf Excerpt from In the Land of the Head-Hunters This book had its inception in an outline or scenario for a motion picture drama dealing with the hardy Indians inhabiting northern British Columbia. I submitted the scenario to my friend Robert Stuart Pigott, who urged that it be put into book form and that the declamatory style of the tribal bards be followed. Pigott is responsible for the suggestion- I am guilty of its execution- and we mutually have a deep affection for the little book. It is the outcome of one of those rare friendships which tend to make life worth living. In the working out of the photo drama and the book, there came to be slight differences between the two- but in the main they are the same, and both give a glimpse of the primitive Americans as they lived in the Stone Age and as they were still living when the hardy explorers Perez, Heceta, Quadra, Cook, Meares, and Vancouver touched the shores of the Pacific between 1774 and 1791. Astonishment has been expressed that headhunting existed among the North American Indians, notwithstanding the fact that every explorer of the North Coast region mentioned this custom.
