Mr Grinnell recorded great details of the everyday and ceremorial days of the Cheyenne Indians. Details of the rolls the men, women, and children played in their society are explained. The quality of the paper and colored pictures add much to this book to make it an excellent research book. Any reader interested in facts of Indian life would enjoy this book.
