The Arapahoes, Our People



Publication: University of Oklahoma Press, 1970, Norman

First edition. 8vo. Cloth, xviii, 372 pp., preface, illustrated, map, bibliography, index. This book traces the history of the Arapahoes from prehistoric times in Minnesota and Canada to the turn of the century in Wyoming, Montana, and Oklahoma, when their cultural history ended and adjustment to the white man's way began. The Arapahoes, who simultaneously occupy the three major divisions of the Great Plains, are typical but the least known of the Plains tribes. Over shadowed by their more hostile allies, the Sioux and Cheyennes, historians have neglected them. The book covers the Arapahoes' their way of life, dealings with traders, treaties, battles, division into branches, and reservation life. There are detailed accounts of the Ghost Dance and peyote cult. Previous owner's name written twice on rear endpapers, else a fine copy. Dust jacket is rubbed, with moderate wear to top edge and upper corners.
