KIRKUS REVIEW

Plainly told experiences of Burbank, the historical painter of the Indians, known to the tribes (there were 128 of them) he visited as ""Many Brushes"". Individuals, attitudes, customs, ceremonies, crafts, as he observed them; Geronimo, the Apache chief, with his money making schemes; Chief Joseph, the great Nez Perce warrior, the Kavajos, their madicine men and their artisans; the and the hospitable Hopis; the California Missions Indians and the Sioux, etc., etc. No fancy dress here, -- writing reduced to its simplest terms for first hand material which may add to historical evidence.
