Gift inscription on first endpaper.Good surviving example of this rare American Indian title from the turn of the century. This is a rare and beautiful book about Native American history, focused largely on famous Indian leaders and conflicts with Europeans/white settlers during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. It was probably written for a younger audience (the text is presented as an ongoing dialogue) yet it presents a great deal of information and contains more than a hundred antique photos and illustrations of American Indians and scenes related to their history. Certainly a wonderful 118-year-old title and collectible, a great introduction to some of Americas greatest true Indian stories.
In order to give you the most accurate description of this rare and fascinating book, I have provided some helpful details below, starting with a detailed summary of the contents, followed by an equally thorough summary of the books hundred-plus photos and illustrations. Further down this page, you can see some of these historic images for yourself. Due to the historical significance of this work and its valuable Native American portraiture, I took the liberty of including more than the usual complement of pictures. It may take an extra few seconds to load, but well worth it. I hope youll take a few moments to have a look.(2) Myths and Legends: Scared by an Owl Mudgekewis Kabibonka Shawandasee Traditions of Wabun The Flood The Dove The Shepherd and His Llamas Ash and Elm, were they Adam and Eve?
