Old man coyote (Crow) by Frank Bird Linderman( )

13 editions published between 1931 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Trickster and transformer, powerful and vulnerable, Coyote is a complex figure in Indian legend. He was often the ultimate example of how not to be: foolish, proud, self-important. The tales in Old Man Coyote were told by the Crow Indians of present-day southeastern Montana. During long winter evenings by the lodge fire, they enjoyed hearing about the only warrior ever to visit the Bird Country, the Little-people who adopted a lost boy, the two-faced tribe that gambled for keeps, the marriage of Worm-face, and the origin of the buffalo. Wandering through these well-spun tales is the irrepressible Old Man Coyote, sometimes scoring a coup, sometimes getting his comeuppance."--BOOK JACKET
Pretty-shield, medicine woman of the Crows by Frank Bird Linderman( Book )

36 editions published between 1932 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pretty-shield told her story to Frank Linderman through an interpreter and using the sign language. A medicine woman of the Crows, she was one of the few who remembered what it was like before the white man came and the buffalo went away. She tells about the simple games and dolls of an Indian childhood and the duties of the girls and women--setting up the lodges, dressing the skins, picking berries, digging roots, cooking. From her account we learn about courtship, marriage, childbirth and the care of babies, about medicine-dreams, the care of the sick, and the dangers and joys of womanhood among men whose lives were spent in hunting and fighting

Wolf and the winds by Frank Bird Linderman( )

7 editions published between 1986 and 2001 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frank Bird Linderman was a popular, prolific, early-twentieth-century recorder of Indian life and culture on the Northern Plains. Linderman lived among the Indians - studying, loving, and grieving for a people whose way of life was under siege. During his study and immersion, Linderman developed a deep admiration for Frozen Water, a spiritual leader who devoted his life to saving the Gros Ventres from an unenviable fate. Wolf and the Winds is Linderman's fictionalized account of Frozen Water's lonely life of valor and sacrifice." "Alternately embraced and outcast by his people, Frozen Water became a hero for stealing horses from the Blackfeet, was cursed for killing a Flathead Indian during negotiations between the U.S. government and the Six Nations, and was blamed afterward for the affliction of smallpox that decimated the Gros Ventres in the nineteenth century. A century later, he lives on under two guises: in a portrait painted by Charles Russell, and in Wolf and the Winds, Linderman's elegy for the fate of the Gros Ventres as embodied in the life of one man."--BOOK JACKET
