Synopsis: A unique treasury of Indian artistry, and a visual record of an important chapter in American history. T his is an historical facsimile of an authentic ledger art bo ok that communicates the history of a unique art form, along with its subject matter. '

From Library Journal: At the tail end of Indian fighting in the West, the U.S. government sent 72 Plains Indians to be interned at Fort Marion, in St. Augustine, FL. During the three years that these prisoners were held as hostages for their tribes, their officer, Capt. Richard Pratt, thought of imaginative crafts they could sell to improve their lot. Over 20 artists created ledger books filled with drawings, one of which is reproduced here. The book is the work of two artists: Making Medicine, a Cheyenne who drew lively and expressive scenes of Plains life, and Zotom, a Kiowa, who offered detailed, three-dimensional scenes that are almost a diary of his travels. Not a facsimile reproduction, this book includes explanatory (and sometimes obvious) comment on each scene and an interesting historical preface. A frequent writer on Native American issues, Viola is curator emeritus for the Smithsonian. Fine but somewhat specialized; recommended for extensive Native American or arts and crafts collections.?Gay Neale, Southside Virginia Community Coll. Lib., Alberta
