Another group of little people that I had never heard of - The Nimerigar Can't Post


"Local Native American tales tell of a mythical race of little people- the Nimerigar who lived in the area of Wind River and the Pedro ranges of Wyoming. The legends say that the Nimerigar ranged between 20 inches and three feet in height. They were gifted with magical powers and the healing arts- yet were also extremely vicious, hence their name which means, “People Eaters.” As with European fairies, it was unwise to cross the Nimerigar who would attack those who displease them with poisoned darts."

That explains it! [In reply to] Can't Post

Doris Lessing uses those legends in her Canopus in Argos series, not Shikasta, but The Sirian Experiments.

The Golden Notebook is her most famous work.

Martha Quest and the series of novels based on that, titled The Children of Violence, ending in The Four-Gated City, are often studied at Universities. She reuses some of her characters in The Four-Gated City in Shikasta.
