Pretty-shield, medicine woman of the Crows by Frank Bird Linderman( Book )

34 editions published between 1932 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,596 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

Indian old-man stories : more sparks from War Eagle's lodge-fire by Frank Bird Linderman( Book )

16 editions published between 1915 and 2012 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Indians of the northwestern plains always laughed at the tales about Old-man, heard around the lodge fire in the wintertime after sunset. For a powerful character, he was comically flawed. Old-man made the world but sometimes forgot the names of things. Victim and victimizer, he seemed closer to common experience than the awesome god Manitou. Frank B. Linderman thought Old-man was, under different names, a god for many Indian communities. These stories - collected from Chippewa and Cree elders and first published in 1920 - are full of wonder at the way things are. Why children lose their teeth, why eyesight fails with age, why dogs howl at night, why some animals wear camouflage - these and other mysteries, large and small, are made vividly sensible."--BOOK JACKET
