Synopsis

Corn occupied an important place in the lives of many Native communities who lived along the Upper Missouri River. In this landmark book, George F. Will and George E. Hyde introduce readers to some fifty varieties of native corn discovered in the Missouri Valley. Equally important, they provide an indispensable overview of Indian agricultural techniques there, including methods of harvesting and storing the crop, the preparation of corn for food, and the role of the crop in intertribal and Indian-white trade. Corn was not only grown, eaten, and traded, it also had a spiritual significance. A final contribution of this book is a discussion of the presence and value of corn in Indian myth, religion, and ritual. George F. Will (1884-1955) is the author of Archaeology of the Missouri Valley (1924) and The Mandans: A Study of Their Culture, Archaeology and Language (1906). George E. Hyde (1882-1968) is the author of several books, including Red Cloud's Folk: A History of the Oglala Sioux Indians (1937), Pawnee Indians (1934), Indians of the High Plains: From the Prehistoric Period to the Coming of Europeans (1959), and Indians of the Woodlands: From Prehistoric Times to 1725 (1962).
