PRETTY SHIELD by Frank B. Linderman
Pretty-shield, the legendary medicine woman of the Crows, remembered what life was like on the Plains when the buffalo were still plentiful. A powerful healer who was forceful, astute, and compassionate, Pretty-shield experienced many changes as her formerly mobile people were forced to come to terms with reservation life in the late nineteenth century. Pretty-shield told her story to Frank Linderman through an interpreter and using sign language. The lives, responsibilities, and aspirations of Crow women are vividly brought to life in these pages as Pretty-shield recounts her life on the Plains of long ago. Alma Snell and Becky Matthews provide a new preface to this edition. Author: Frank B. Linderman Publisher: University of Nebraska Press , Soft Cover, 148 pages, 6"x8".
