They pierced Sioux country to dig up giant fossils. They found the fossils, and they found the Sioux.
Candace Huxtable, daughter of a British scientist, joins a Smithsonian expedition to the Dakota Badlands, much to the displeasure of the men in the group. They are guided by shrewd, self-educated Rufus Crowe, who warns them about what is permissible and what isn't in sacred Sioux country.
The scientists soon learn that Crowe was right, but that doesn't stop them. They want fossils, and the Sioux artifacts they find in burial grounds, no matter what the price.
This was Mr. Wheeler's top-selling novel when it first appeared. Now, at last, it is available as an electronic book, condensed and revised.
