This 50th anniversary edition provides a fresh perspective on Bad Heart Bull's drawings through digital scans of the original photographic plates created when Blish was doing her research. Lost for nearly half a century-and unavailable when the 1967 edition was being assembled-the recently discovered plates are now housed at the Smithsonian's National Anthropological Archives. Readers of the volume will encounter new introductions by Emily Levine and Candace S. Greene, crisp images and notations, and additional material that previously appeared only in a limited number of copies of the original edition.

"This five-pound, 50th-anniversary labor of love reproduces all 414 ledger pages of Amos Bad Heart Bull's annotated pictorial history of his Oglala Lakota people, with digitized prints of the glass plate photographs of the original."-A. B. Kehoe, CHOICE -- A. B. Kehoe * CHOICE *
"The significance of Amos Bad Heart Bull's work to our understanding of Plains Indian history cannot be overstated. It is an unparalleled Native account documenting Oglala Lakota life during the tumultuous period of the 1860s to the 1910s. This anniversary issue provides both enhanced illustrations and additional context from the past fifty years, making it even more valuable to the Native and scholarly communities and everyone interested in American Indian art, culture, and history."-Christina E. Burke, curator of Native American and non-Western art at the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma -- Christina E. Burke
