Beschreibung

The world of the Crow Indians comes to life in this extraordinary collection of stories from respected elder and famed storyteller Joseph Medicine Crow. Raised by traditional grandparents, who remembered life before the reservation days, Medicine Crow as a child would listen to stories that his grandfather and other elders told during sweat baths. He also learned about the Indian wars of earlier years from White Man Runs Him, one of Custer's Crow scouts. Medicine Crow became a passionate collector of stories and information about Crow life and history. This volume is a fascinating and informative collection of legends, humorous tales, history, and detailed accounts of life and culture, all told from Crow points of view.

Pressestimmen

"In 1932, Medicine Crow began to compile a vast array of information on Crow history and culture and, sixteen years later, was designated tribal historian and anthropologist by the Crow Tribal Council. From the Heart of the Crow Country highlights the author's talent as a storyteller."--American Indian Quarterly "Homespun slices of Crow archaeology, mythic history, and living memory ... Always rewarding."--Ethnohistory
