First edition. Cloth, 235 pp., foreword by Wm. H. Leckie. Introduction, chapter notes, bibliography, index. A thoroughly, researched and well-written biography of this great Kiowa Chief. From Satanta's birth ca. 1815 to his ignominious death in a Texas prison in 1878, Robinson deals with Satanta, as both legend and man, within the context, heritage, and history of the Kiowa culture as it came face-to-face with the encroachments of western immigration. "Fast moving, readable narrative brings to life this striking character...and assesses his significance in Indian-white conflict as well as his legacy among his own people."---Robert Utley. As new, in dust jacket.
