On the Origin of Tepees

On the Origin of Tepees

Jonnie Hughes


all through heritage, we people have prided ourselves on our means to have rules, yet possibly this satisfaction is lost. probably principles have us. during this e-book, technological know-how author and documentary filmmaker Jonnie Hughes investigates the evolution of principles, looking at how they appear to have lives in their personal. Adopting the function of a cultural Charles Darwin, Hughes travels around the Midwest together with his brother to watch firsthand the ordinary heritage of ideas--the styles in their version, inheritance, and choice within the cultural panorama. in preference to Darwin's oceanic islands, Hughes visits the "mind islands" of local American tribes. rather than finches, Hughes searches for indicators of ordinary choice one of the tepees. With a knack for locating the humor within the quirks of the yank cultural panorama, Hughes takes us on a travel from the Mall of the USA in Minneapolis to what he calls the "maul" of America--Custer's final stand--stopping at roadsides and discoursing on sandwiches, the form of cowboy hats, the evolution of barn roofs, and extra. unique, witty, and fascinating, "On the foundation of Tepees "offers a clean method of knowing either our rules and ourselves.
