World Wisdom, Inc, 2008 - 235 pages
This beautiful book takes George Bird Grinnell's classic work on the Cheyenne Indians and condenses it into 240 fully-illustrated pages of his most essential writings. Grinell was the long-time editor of Field & Stream magazine and helped to establish both the Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. During his career he documented several tribes of the old West, including this vivid account of the last of the Cheyenne Indians, who were forced to live out their lives as nomads.
