Focusing on the Northern Plains and the Southwest, Iverson (history, Arizona State U.) traces the rise and fall of individual and tribal cattle industries against the backdrop of changing federal Indian policies. He chronicles the policies and factors, such as allotment, leasing, non-Indian competition, and a changing regional economy, that have limited the long-term economic success of Native ranching operations. Includes b&w photos. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
