I recall first noticing this book in a University of Oklahoma: Press catalog back in the late 1990s, did not have a PC in those days and my local bookstore had great difficulty in obtaining a copy for me. Seems I paid a high price also, but the book was and is certainly worth it.

unique view of history. The text does an excellent job of explaining the illustrations. Each time they're examined, I see more.

The book is finely done, well-presented, and I admire the primitive style of the Indian artists very much. Excellent book.

Not quite what I'd expected, but nice coffee table book.

A most absorbing read with a most detailed visual cataloging of the artwork. One compelling question is who were the individual artists. Granted that Dog Soldiers were mentioned throughout, the emphasis should be slightly reduced, by the obvious fact that other than Dog Soldiers contributed to the ledger, artwork and battles. Obviously the Dog Soldier community was the focal point of a great deal of the military effort of the Indians and their demise signaled the death knell of the Dog Soldier freedom, actually their independent powerbase, and the great fissure between the Northern and Southern Cheyenne confederates (not civil war, but the tribal confederation under the Mahuts. It also seems highly unlikely that the Brave Wolf pictures with the Thunder Bow could be anyone other than the Northern Cheyenne of that name. Seems highly improbable that two individuals with the same name would be Contrarys. Hopefully, Brave Wolf left some legacy of his deeds somewhere. Highly enjoyable and most recommended for all readers. Thanks, Harry!

I recall first noticing this book in a University of Oklahoma: Press catalog back in the late 1990s, did not have a PC in those days and my local bookstore had great difficulty in obtaining a copy for me. Seems I paid a high price also, but the book was and is certainly worth it.

For anyone such as myself, college major in anthropology, having an abiding interest in the plains tribes and Cheyenne Dog Soldier societies, including Elk Horn Scrapers, Bow Strings, Kit Foxes, Red Shields, and even the contraries, this volume will engross and educate.

I pull the volume out from time-to-time just to leaf and browse through it, with it never failing to hold my interest. Not only are there the ledgerbook histories but several actual period photographs are also included. You get a 'feel' for what all these earlier people actually were like.

Much artist as well as historical information can be gleaned from this volume of 400+ pages. Highly recommended for people interested in the Cheyenne Indians wars or the 1860s on the plains. Included also are four (4) pages of maps for the Northern Plains, 1864-65, South Platte River Trail Stage Stations and Ranches 1865, Smoky Hill Trail 1865, and the Central Plains area 1864-1869.

A fine volume especially at dealer's prices compared to what earlier purchasers had to shell out.
