Red Mother
NY, John Day, (1932). The life story of Pretty-Shield, a Crow Medicine Women, as told to Linderman through an interpreter and also in the Plains Indian sign language, which he had mastered. An early account by a woman, whose life and memories stretched back before the disappearance of the buffalo and the last of the Plains Indian wars. Pretty Shield's husband was a scout for Custer at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. A bit of darkening near the spine crown, else a fine copy in a very good dust jacket with modest sunning, a bit of discoloration to the rear panel, and light wear to the spine extremities and joints. Slight flaws notwithstanding, a very nice copy, and rare in jacket. [#035117] $575
