Based on the activities of Northern Cheyenne Indians in 1868, this book describes everyday life on the northern plains before widespread European settlement forced the Indians onto reservation. Each double-page spread focuses on one aspect of life—housing, food, warfare, medicine, government, leisure activities, etc. Real-life models in excellent color photos demonstrate clothing styles, setting up a tipi, preparing for battle, and hunting practices. Numerous color photographs showing actual articles used by Cheyennes are coordinated with concise explanations of the use and purpose of each item.
