Avatar for Emily Lloyd Emily Lloyd said:
Some really great details & stories in here. Medicine Crow accomplished the four war deeds that make one a Crow chief, for ex, without consciously realizing it while fighting in WWII (the only Indian in his unit)--and first learned to use a bow & arrow and canoe as a summer camp counselor in New Hampshire. Many of his grandfathers were present at the battle of Little Big Horn, and he describes his elders’ transition to the reservation life imposed on them in their later years. Medicine Crow was the first male Crow to graduate from college (a female Crow graduated two years before him!). Clear simple prose, an engaging & rewarding read.
