Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is another very valuable addition to the 'Peoples of America' series, tracing Cheyenne history from its earliest origins in the sub-Arctic right up to the present-day Cheyenne life on Oklahoma and Montana reservations. This is an engaging and informative history; but the best thing about this book is the unique understanding it provides of Cheyenne culture through its series of personal anecdotes well told."
