About this Item

Book is missing jacket, but boards are very clean showing only the mildest wear. Pages are likewise clean with the exception of the first few and, on and near, pages with photographs, all of which show foxing, most particularly on title page. An interesting autobiography of an American journalist/actor named Sylvester Clark Long who passed himself off as a Blackfoot Indian chief. Eventually he was exposed as a fraud of mixed heritage -- Caucasian, African American and Native American (though not Blackfoot.) Long Lance served as a spokesman for Native American issues and, to his credit, did know much about Native American culture. His death was ruled a suicide. Book is SIGNED by Long Lance on front free endpaper thus: "To Mss Reader with my good wishes, Buffalo Chief Long Lance October, 15, 1928." 278 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 24510

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
