Abstract:

"George Catlin's Letters and Notes on the North American Indians was originally published in 1841 in two volumes. It is an astonishing work by an extraordinary reporter. It is the record, and sometimes the only record, of the last high afternoon of glory for the Indian nations west of the Mississippi. This single-volume edition, illustrated with Catlin's portraits and line drawings, preserves the best of his description and anecdote ... His Letters and Notes describe the Indians while they still inhabited their own country; they report the native costumes, occupations, dances, great medicines, feasts, and ceremonies and principal personalities-all portrayed in delightful anecdote."--Jacket.
