Land of the Spotted Eagle
Boston: Houghton, Mifflin & Co, 1933. First edition. original brown cloth pictorially stamped and lettered in black, top edges stained black. Fine/pictorial dust jacket (with some tears and loss of paper). Octavo. Illustrated Signed by the author on front free endpaper "This unusual book gives an intimate, unadorned picture of the world of the Lakotas, or western Sioux Indians, by the last great chief of the tribe. From the time the young Indian babe first leaves his mother's arms to his solemn, picturesque initiation as a brave, every important event in his life is presented in its true significance. The 'professions' open to the Indian youth, the civil arrangement of bands, chiefs, and lodges, tribal customs, the Sun Dance and the ritual of purification, the magic of the medicine-man and the worship of the Great Spirit - these things require the pen of a full-blooded Indian, like Chief Standing Bear, for their proper interpretation to the white man's world." - from the dust jacket.
