Ambitious concept 22m "THE MONONGALIA STORY, A Bicentennial History, 1. Prelude," by Earl L. Core, McClain Printing Co., Parsons, W.Va. $20. Scholarly, painstaking West Virginia historians are all too rare as countless researchers who have gone to the libraries can attest. Therefore it is a joy to discover that Dr. Earl L. Core, professor emeritus of the West Virginia University Biology Dept., is as careful in his handling of history as he has been in his preparation of hand- · books on West Virginia botany. In his preface, Dr. Core advises that this is the first volume of a five-volume comprehensive work to constitute a bicentennial bicenni- al history of Monongalia County, W.Va. If it seems a bit too much to write, five volumes of history on just one county, you should remember that at the outset, at least, Monongalia County included most of the northern half of the state, plus some of Pennsylvania. Dr. Core says; "The county was established in 1776 and has experienced numerous increases and decreases in geographic size through the years." Dr. Core's plan is to follow this "Prelude"with 50-year bites of "The Monongalia Story" and deal with any. areas that are within the county boundaries during those times. His "Prelude" is a researchers' gold mine, logically organized, carefully indexed thoughtfully written. Although the bibliography for "Prelude" reads like the whole r library of Congress card catalog on West Virginia, Dr\ Core avoids the pitfalls and snares that trap too many would-be historians. He doesn't popularize, doesn't skim. He sticks to the facts: people, places, and dates. For example he devotes"169 pages of Chapter VIII, "The Beginning of Settlement." to printing the nucleus of all land certificates issued from 1766 to 1776 in what was to become Monongalia County. For those interested in genealogical research, that approach to history is considered the mother lode. Another facet of "Prelude,' that makes it so valuable is Dr. Core's stepping aside to let. others take up the tale when the subject of a chapter demands the knowledge of an expert. ' . ' . : . . ' James A. Barlow, coal geologist of the West Virginia Geological Survey, handles Chapter II on "Geology". William L. Wylie, assistant professor of Forestry, WVU, wrote Chapter IV on "Fauna." Bettye J. Broyles of the W.Va. Geological Survey wrote Chapter V on "Prehistory." "Frontier Forts" was written by Donovan H. Bond, executive director of the WVU foundation, who is in the process of compiling a book on them. Dr. Russell G. BroWn of the University of Maryland, who was born .and raised in Monongalia County, wrote Chapter X on the "Daily Life of the Pioneers." Stanley E. Dadismah, attorney 1 and former professor of law at WVU wrote Chapter XI and XII, "Poltical Setting" and "Formation of the County." v ; - . - · ' - . Prelude".is well illustrated with maps, charts, photographs, and drawings. Most of the,drawings, borrowed from earlier work's have ; the rough simplicity thatimakes ; them look like they were sketched on the scene 200 years ago." "The Monongalia Story 'is a tre-_ mendous ambitious undertaking, and if later volumes maintain the excellence of "Prelude," it will be a monumental work. .,, Harold C. Gadd Gentle 'savages 9 "THE GENTLE TASADAY," H.L. by John Nance, Harcourt,. Brace and Jpvanovich, $15.. · John Nance was employed by the Associated Press in Manila when the existence of the Tasaday (pronounced Taw-SAW-day) was announced to the world. Since that day in 1971, there probably isn't anyone who hasn't seen pictures of this small stone-age tribe in newspapers, magazines, or on television. The fact that even a tribe of less than 30 could have remained hidden in the rain forests of Mindanao until this late date made front-page news. John Nance was one of the first outsiders to see and photograph the group. "The Gentle Tasaday" is his account of the effect civilization has had on the Tasaday and the impact the Tasaday have had on civilization. The book is totally absorbing. The only more-or-less recent volume that was as moving is "At Play in the Fields of the Lord," but that was fiction. The Tasaday are real. And they are beautiful. The book's photographs show : a clear- eyed, intelligent, and affectionate people whose life-style was so primitive that the mete introduction of steel knives moved them thousands of years ahead on the evolutionary scale. They had no weapons, nor words for enemy or war. Charles A. Lindbergh, the world- famous flier, wrote the foreword to this book, and he visited the tribe shortly before his death. The Tasa- day have a lot to learn from the,outside world. Lindbergh felt it is important that the Tasaday be protected and allowed to advance at their own pace, so he made helping them one of his last acts. There is another reason for cherishing the Tasaday--any people who have no word for war have something to teach in return. . --Albert F. Nussbaum August 10,1975; Suhtiayfiteette-Matt. :
