"In these and other stories written from 1890-1905, Hamlin Garland sought to capture his vision of the spirit of the Native American Indian in transition. Based on ten years of visits to reservations in the American West, these stories are of interest for readers today in part because they illustrate a sincere and well-intentioned white reformer coming to understand a culture radically at odds with his own - and discovering in the process that his own culture is less "advanced" than he had supposed." "This edition reprints the text and illustrations from the 1923 printing as well as two of Garland's essays indicting the treatment of Indians. An introduction places the stories in the historical context of Garland's life and times."--BOOK JACKET
