This second book in the American Heritage Series is a broad and vivid depiction of life among the Plain Indians of the United States from their prehistoric civilization up to the Sioux uprisings in 1890. It deals in detail with their modes of agriculture, their crafts, rituals, medicines, arts, war practices, penal customs. It also presents and unbiased picture of the struggle between the white man and the Indians, allowing to each his failures and his virtues. Brilliantly illustrated with contemporary lithographs, engravings, water colors and oils, and maps, this is an invaluable aid to the study of this continent and its first inhabitants.
