Perfect first edition for collectors or gift-giving. 219 pp. A couple of maps and several b/w photos including an interesting one of hunters casting hounds from the back of their pickup. A volume in the Publications of the American Folklore Society. Chaseworld is a study of the foxhunters who listen to hounds in the Pine Barrens of So. NJ. Mary Hufford examines the activities that occur before, during and after foxchases and analyzes the stories that hunters tell about chases. Hufford discusses the chase itself as a performance unfolding through an established sequence of events, and ordered accordingly to clearly understood rules and conventions. Orchestrating and interpreting the chase, foxhunters conjure the Chaseworkd, a realm wherein nature and society are uniquely reconstructed. Drawing upon theories from folklore, phenomenological sociology, and symbolic anthropology, Hufford explores the interrelations of the Chaseworld and everyday life, and suggests possible meanings and functions of the Chaseworld in the lives of its creators. Her fresh and sensitive study will be of interest to students and scholars of folklore, anthropology and American Studies.
