This original study of Plains Indian cultures of the 19th century is presented through the use of period writings, paintings, and early photography that relate how life was carried out. The author juxtaposes the sources with new research and modern color photography of specific replica items. The comprehensive text documents many of the major tribes, such as Blackfeet, Cheyenne, Comanche, Crow, Hidatsa, Mandan, Lakota, and others. Observations of Plains Indian men's and women's experiences include procuring food, dancing, developing spiritual beliefs, and day-to-day living. This second edition contains new color photos and text, adding to the richness and depth of detail in the well-received original. Through original photos and re-creations, rare primary sources, and updated content, Bad Hand provides an invaluable resource not only on Plains Indians, but on bringing past peoples to full, colorful life.
