Publisher Comments:

Beginning with legendary times and extending to the first year of the reservation, Cheyenne Memories is a unique effort by an American Indian to collect and preserve the history of his people. The late John Stands In Timber, a Northern Cheyenne whose grandfather was killed in the Custer massacre, was born in 1884. The recounting of Cheyenne traditions formed an im-portant part of his life from early childhood and in 1905 he became the self-appointed keeper of the oral literature of his tribe, seeking out old-timers who could contribute personal memories to Cheyenne lore. His collaboration with anthropologist Margot Liberty, which began in 1956, spanned more than a decade.
