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

14 editions published between 1931 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,753 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 )

35 editions published between 1932 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pretty-Shield, born in the 1830s, tells the story of her life and times to Frank Linderman, a trusted friend, through an interpreter and using 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. Through her recollections and Linderman's queries, she recounts the Crow lifestyle, beliefs, family relationships, and tribal practices. The descriptions of the storyteller, Pretty-Shield, and the emotional associations to her life events give this book special meaning. Through this woman's recollections, the importance of family, childhood, courtship, and medicine dreams are seen from a female perspective. This book was perhaps the first record of the women's side of Indian life and it has become a classic work in its field. -- from back cover

Plenty-Coups, chief of the Crows by Plenty Coups( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Provides an insight into Indian culture that can never again be captured."--"American Book Collector". In his old age the last hereditary chief of the Crow Indians told the exciting story of his life to Frank B. Linderman, the well-known western writer who had befriended him. Originally published in 1930, "Plenty-coups: Chief of the Crows" is recognized as a classic account of the Plains Indian's vanished way of life. The great chief speaks eloquently of the highlights of his own life: his medicine dream, his late marriage, the death of General Custer. But, significantly, he refuses to speak of the time after the passing of the buffalo. "Linderman scores a major triumph in translating these vivid recollections into a genuine record of Indian life," wrote the reviewer for Arizona and the West. Frank B. Linderman is the author of "Pretty-shield: Medicine Woman of the Crows", available as a Bison Book

13 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Native American was a true lover of nature and close observer of the sights and sounds about him. He delighted in composing tales that offered imaginative explanations for everything--from simple stories about creation to fanciful accounts of how animals acquired certain physical characteristics. This entertaining collection of 22 stories, compiled nearly a century ago by a devotee of Indian lore who considered them "well-worth saving," recounts many of the legends told to him by members of the Blackfeet, Chippewa and Cree tribes. Here are intriguing explanations of "How the Ducks Got Their Fine Feathers," "Why the Kingfisher Always Wears a War-Bonnet," "Why the Chipmunk's Back Is Striped," "Why Blackfeet Never Kill Mice," "How the Otter Skin Became Great 'Medicine, '" "Why the Mountain-Lion Is Long and Lean," "How the Man Found His Mate," "Why the Birch-Tree Wears the Slashes in Its Bark" and many other tales rich in fanciful characters. Told in simple, direct language and enhanced with 32 illustrations by famed "cowboy artist" Charles M. Russell, these fables will delight children, lovers of tall tales and students of Native American culture. Unabridged Dover (1995) republication of the edition published by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1915. 32 black-and-white illustrations. 96pp. 5-3/8 x 8-1/2. Paperbound
