Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born in 1868 the son of an Oglala chief, Luther Standing Bear was in the first class at Carlisle, witnessed the Ghost Dance uprising from the Pine Ridge Reservation, toured Europe with Buffalo Bills Wild West show, and devoted his later years to the Indian rights movement of the 1920s. His autobiography, first published in 1928, gives a rare inside view by an Indian who successfully made the transition from tribal life to the white man's world.

Synopsis:

When it was first published in 1928, Luther Standing Bear's autobiographical account of his tribe and tribesmen was hailed by Van Wyck Brooks as 'one of the most engaging and veracious we have ever had.' It remains a landmark in Indian literature, among the first books about Indians written from the Indian point of view by an Indian.
