Overview

Anthology of short stories about American Indian life

Shimmering tales of American Indian lives and worlds, exciting accounts of the long-lost western frontier, these seventeen short stories are among the best ever penned by the acclaimed author of Black Elk Speaks. An Omaha Indian elder tells of “The Singer of the Ache,” widely believed to be John G. Neihardt’s masterpiece of short fiction; the social outcast Black Dog is unforgettable in “The Look in the Face.” Other Indian tales featured are “The White Wakunda,” “Dreams are Wiser than Men,” “The Last Thunder Song,” “The Mark of Shame,” “Vylin,” and “Mignon.” Neihardt’s enchanting frontier stories include arguably his most popular story, “The Alien,” in which Antoine, a fur trapper, adopts a she-wolf, Susette, and sets in motion a horrific chain of events. There are many more tales from the Old West: “The Art of Hate,” “The Parable of the Sack,” “The Revolt of a Sheep,” “The Nemesis of the Deuces,” “The Scars,” and the acclaimed supernatural stories “The Red Roan” and “Beyond the Spectrum.”

Dazzling, true to the subject, and highly readable, these tales show a master storyteller at the height of his craft.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In all these tales Mr. Neihardt writes with extreme simplicity, grace, and beauty; he has adapted his style perfectly to his subject matter, and so has made his material as charming as it is engrossing.” — New York Times
