The Plains Indians, their past and present. First British Edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “In the days when the Great Plains was an as yet unexplored territory, the Plains Indians lived there. They roamed the vast prairie freely and happily. They lived in harmony with the land, the waters, the buffalo, and all the natural wonders of a land unspoiled by civilization. Then the white man started moving west and the Indians’ troubles began. The Sun Dance People is a study of the culture of a warm and brave people. It is also a chronicle of the Plains Indians’ struggle to save their land, their way of life, their very Indianness — a struggle that has not yet ended.”
