Overview

Written at the turn of the century by the founder of the National Audubon Society, Story of the Indian is an attempt to preserve the picturesque and original aspects of our western development when the figures of the real west were the Indian, the explorer, the soldier, the miner, the ranchman, the trapper and the railroad worker. As a famed explorer, naturalist and pioneer conservationist, George Bird Grinnell's knowledge of the west was gained by true-life experiences in ranching, mining and Indian life between Sonora and Vancouver, Texas and Dakota.

Intended to be stories of human interest rather than categories of facts, Grinnell, in his writing, takes us to the Indian council and campfire. He shows us how the Indians wooed and fought, hunted and prayed, ate and slept, breathing spirit into the scenes and preserving the qualities of reality.

The natives told these stories to Grinnell through an interpreter. His long association with the tribe enabled them to share their thoughts and feelings. He understood that although the red man had savage qualities, the most impressive characteristic of the Indian was his humanity.
