312 pages; size is apx. MANY MORE PICTURES DOWN BELOW -scroll down. The popular opinion of the American Indian has, for generations, been based upon prejudice and ignorance - as thoughtless as it is unreasoning & unjust. The red man of America may be no saint, but he is at least a man, and should not be condemned unheard.He has his side of the story quite as much as has his white conqueror. Desire, acquisition, superiority, indifference -these have been the steps toward the ostracism that has been visited upon the American Indian, denying him justice & opportunity for advancement since the earliest days of white occupation. It is these barriers to progress that have alike created and complicated the vexed Indian problem..... The mistreatment of the Indian, a recent writer declares, is one of the abuses of the age, and one of the reproaches of civilization.
