"Paul Radin, one of America's first and most reputable professional anthropologists, lived among the Winnebago Indians for years, and for years he tried without success to interview the notorious younger son of the Blow Snake family, Crashing Thunder. At last Crashing Thunder agreed to tell Radin his life story, one that Radin calls "a true rake's progress." Speaking through Radin, Crashing Thunder tells of his childhood, stories of Winnebago gods, his appetite for women and beer, and his extraordinary friends and relatives. He also tells of his redemption through his new religion, peyote. To enhance understanding of the autobiography and its place in anthropology and literature, a new foreword, appendix, and index have been prepared by eminent Native American scholar, Arnold Krupat."--Jacket

Originally taken down in the field, in Winnebago, from the dictation of the Indian known as S.B., it relates S.B.'s life as he looked back upon it: with the emphases, interpretations, and values that he considered important. Dr. Radin, without altering the text, translated it into English and annotated it extensively to explain features of Winnebago culture and outlook that might not be obvious to the reader
