1 Verrier Elwin
Myths of the North-East Frontier of India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121509157 / 9788121509152; Reprint; Hardbound; New; New; 
This book contains some three hundred and eighty stories collected in the remote villages, largely untouched by external influence, of the hitherto little known North-East Frontier Agency of India. This great tract of mountain and forest is inhabited by people who have preserved their social organization and cultural institutions almost intact throughout the centuries. Their mythology is thus of absorbing interest, for although the motifs of some of the stories are known elsewhere in India and indeed throughout the world, there are many others which are fresh and original. This book, therefore, will not only be of value to professional students of folklore but will also open a door of exciting surprise to anyone interested in a good story with a new and unexpected flavour.

2 Verrier Elwin; G.N. Devy
The Oxford India Elwin
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 019569791X / 9780195697919; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
From presenting Elwin’s work among the tribal peoples of central India, to affording glimpses of his seminal work on the unique institution of the ghotul among the Murias of Bastar, or relating Elwin’s attempts at understanding the high incidence of murder and suicide among the Bison-horn Marias of Bastar, The Oxford India Elwin looks beyond the general and the oft-repeated to include within its covers the many fascinating discoveries that Verrier Elwin made while working among the different tribal communities in India. It comes with a useful and perceptive Introduction by G.N. Devy. 024453
