Synopsis

When it was first published in 1928, Luther Standing Bear's autobiographical account of his tribe and tribesmen was hailed by Van Wyck Brooks as "one of the most engaging and veracious we have ever had." It remains a landmark in Indian literature, among the first books about Indians written from the Indian point of view by an Indian. Born in the 1860s the son of a Lakota chief, Standing Bear was in the first class at Carlisle, witnessed the Ghost Dance uprising from the Pine Ridge Reservation, toured Europe with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, and devoted his later years to the Indian rights movement of the 1920s and '30s. His story offers a rare inside view by an Indian who successfully made the transition from traditional tribal life to the white man's world, but never lost his pride in and identification with his Indian heritage. Richard N. Ellis is editor of "The Western American Indian: Case Studies in Tribal History."
