Cloth Hardcover with Dust Jacket, 256 pages, 12 1/4" tall. Very Good. DJ is price clipped, has light chipping and yellowing along edges. Gift inscription on endpaper. Inside pages clean and binding is tight. In 1833 the German explorer and naturalist. Prince Maximilian zu Wied, together with Karl Bodmer, his Swiss-born artist companion, traveled some 5, 000 miles along the Missouri River during their yearlong sojourn with the Plains Indians. Man-dan. Blackfoot, Cree, Sioux, Minnetaree, Assiniboin, and Gros Ventres were among the diverse tribes of the Plains, where mastery of the horse had catapulted the Plains Indians to fame and undreamed-of material wealth less than a half century before Maximilian"s arrival in North America.In an economy enriched by bison and other plentiful game, warlike tribes on horseback produced a brief moment of Indian power and glory without benefit of a common language. Within a decade of Maximilian"s return to Europe, Manifest Destiny, accompanied by smallpox and alcohol, led to the virtual extermination of the Plains culture.Traveling as guests of the American Fur Company, which trafficked in pelts and illegal whiskey, the European travelers were quick to discern the Indians" fate. It became Maximilian"s and Bodmer"s dangerous task to live and travel among many tribes to record painstakingly their daily life and ceremonial activities.

Wooden Leg : A Warrior Who Fought Custer, Wooden Leg; Thomas B. Marquis [Translator]
8 Wooden Leg; Thomas B. Marquis [Translator] Wooden Leg : A Warrior Who Fought Custer
University of Nebraska Press 1931-01-01 0803251246 / 9780803251243 Paperback Used: Like New Paperback 
Light crease in cover. Inside pages clean and binding is tight. Wooden Leg was one of the sixteen hundred warriors of the Northern Cheyennes who fought with the Sioux against Custer at the legendary Battle of the Little Bighorn. As an old man in his seventies, he related his story of the battle to Thomas B. Marquis, formerly an agency physician for the Northern Cheyennes, in scores of interviews, illustrating his statements with drawings and maps. Some aspects of Wooden Leg's account have provoked controversy, but as Marquis points out, soon after the battle the Sioux were settled in the Dakotas while the Cheyennes were located on the reservation in the heart of the region where had been the conflicts. Thus they have kept their memories fresh or have kept each other prompted into true recollections. This advantageous condition has rendered them the best of first-hand authorities. The author checked and corroborated or corrected all points of importance with other Cheyennes, among them Limpy, Pine, Bobtail Horse, Sun Bear, Black Horse, Two Feathers, Wolf Chief, Little Sun, Blackbird, Big Beaver, Medicine Bull, and the younger Little Wolf, all of whom were with the hostile Indians when Custer came.
