(NY), Macmillan, (1970). The galley sheets of this powerful polemic by the best-known spokesman for Native American causes to emerge in the late Sixties. His second book, after the highly praised Custer Died for Your Sins, and one of the early books of what has come to be called the Native American Renaissance. Roughly 60 7-1/2" x 12" sheets, printed on rectos only. String-tied (shoelace, to be specific) at the top, in blue cardstock covers printing only the title and publisher (no author). The rear cover has a partially removed label. Near fine. The galley's lack the book's appendix; casual inspection revealed only the change in the recurring spelling of one name (Foreman became Forman). Exceedingly scarce: the format suggests that only a tiny handful would have been produced, each of them assembled by hand. [#032664] $300
San Francisco, Straight Arrow Books, (1971). A documentary history of the dealings between the U.S. Government and Indian tribes, spanning the years 1830-1970, edited and with commentary by Deloria. Comprising excerpts from treaties, bills, speeches, judicial rulings and the like, representing both a polemic and a useful primary source reference. Fine in a very good dust jacket with a corner chip. [#016610] $20
