This original study of Plains Indian cultures of the 19th century is presented through the use of period writings paintings and early photography that relate how life was carried out. The author juxtaposes the sources with new research and modern color photography of specific replica items. Thereby the past comes to life and today's readers learn this history with concrete examples to which they relate. The comprehensive text documents the seven major tribes: Blackfeet Cheyenne Comanche Crow Hidatsa Mandan and Lakota. Observations of Plains Indian men's and women's habits include procuring food dancing developing spiritual beliefs and experiencing daily life. Prominent leaders and average members of the tribes are introduced and major incidents are explained. True stories come to light through objects that relate to each incident and personality. With an understanding of these cultures readers learn basic similarities of all people ancient to present including today's multi-cultural society.
