Stories of the Sioux (Hardback)Luther Standing Bear (author)

- Not available
Luther Standing Bear, a Lakota Sioux born in the 1860s, heard these legends in his youth, when his people were being moved to reservations. Haunting in mood and imagery, they celebrate the old nomadic life of the Sioux when buffalo were plentiful and all nature fed the spirit. The twenty stories honor not only the buffalo but also the dog, horse, eagle, and wolf as workaday helpers and agents of divine intervention; the wisdom of the medicine man; and the heroism and resourcefulness of individual men and women. Luther Standing Bear is the author of Land of the Spotted Eagle, My People the Sioux, and My Indian Boyhood (also Bison Books).
