HEAR ME, MY CHIEFS by Herbert Ravenel Sass


Email this review


A picture of the United States before white man's domination, not only of the Indian way of life, but of the abundance of wild animals, game, and bird life. Topflight stories of Indians dreams of peace among themselves, of persecution by land and gold hungry pioneers, of Indian roads still in use today, of an Indian Empire projected by a white man, Charles Priber, of the fight against railroad building, and so on. There is some ethnological interest assured through his treatment of Indian culture, social life and the military genius of Indian heroes and martyrs. While not pretending to be complete coverage, this is a valuable addition to Indian lore and history, with special emphasis on the Great Smokies section.
