When buffalo ran by George Bird Grinnell( )

18 editions published between 1920 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the white men came, there was a natural beauty in the land and the lives of the Plains Indians that will never be again. These people lived together, hunted the buffalo and the deer, fought their enemies, and developed a unique wisdom-- almost a philosophy-- for their own simple existence. As it was incorporated into the daily lives of these people, this tribal wisdom became tribal tradition. Indian children early learned the ways of their tribe. The Indian boy Wikis, whose story Grinnell tells, had no father to teach him, but his uncle helped to instruct him in the ways of hunting and war. The answers to some questions, such as, Would he fight with courage in battle? Wikis had to discover for himself. Grinnell's narrative recounts true incidents and experiences in the boy's life, his relationship to his family and his tribe, and his growth into a warrior and a man. First published in 1920 and long out of print, When Buffalo Ran was described by J. Frank Dobie as "noble and beautifully simple"--Jacket

"In the late Eighteen Eighties George Bird Grinnell visited the Pawnee Agency in Indian Territory. When he went to call on Eagle Chief, whom he had known for many years, this is how he explained the object of his visit: "Father, we have come down here to...ask the people about how things used to be in the olden times, to hear their stories, to get their history, and then to put all these things down in a book." The Chief meditated for a time and then said: "It is good and it is time. Already the old things are being lost, and those who knew the secrets are many of them dead... The old men told their grandchildren, and they told their grandchildren, and so the secrets and the stories and the doings of long ago have been handed down....It is well that they should be put down, so that our children, when they are like the white people, can know what were their fathers' ways."-- Back cover
