Synopsis: A highly respected elder of the Crow tribe draws on stories he has collected throughout his lifetime to offer a unique glimpse of American Indian culture as Indians themselves know it. "No one who hungers to understand what America lost when it destroyed the Plains Indian cultures should miss this exciting little book."--Tony Hillerman.
From the Back Cover: The world of the Crow Indians comes to life in this extraordinary collection of stories from respected elder and famed storyteller Joseph Medicine Crow. Raised by traditional grandparents, who remembered life before the reservation days, Medicine Crow as a child would listen to stories that his grandfather and other elders told during sweat baths. He also learned about the Indian wars of earlier years from White Man Runs Him, one of Custer's Crow scouts. Medicine Crow became a passionate collector of stories and information about Crow life and history. This volume is a fascinating and enlightening collection of legends, humorous tales, history, and detailed accounts of life and culture, all told from Crow points of view.
