Medicine man and Sun Dance chief Thomas Yellowtail is a pivotal figure in Crow tribal life. As a youth he lived in the presence of old warriors, hunters, and medicine men who knew the freedom and sacred ways of pre-reservation life. As the principal figure in the Crow-Shoshone Sun Dance religion, Yellowtail has preserved traditional values in the face of the constantly encroaching, diametrically opposed values of materialistic modern socity. Through his life story and description of the Sun Dance religion we can reexamine the premises and orientations of both cultures.

From Publishers Weekly:

Yellowtail, born in 1903, is among the last of his generation of Native Americans. A medicine man (high priest) of the top rank, he views himself as a link between traditional indigenous spirituality and the tribulations of Native Americans under white society's thumb. Yellowtail believes his people must either return to their ethnic religions or face destruction by the white man's unreflective lifestyle. Here, as told to Indiana attorney Fitzgerald, who was adopted by the Crow in 1972, Yellowtail describes his experiences in the rigorous Sun Dance religion and details important ceremonies. While authentic and conveying the character of Yellowtail's spoken voice, the story is often repetitive. Illustrations.
