Originally published in 1932 as Red Mother, this book was perhaps the first record of the women's side of Indian life, and has become a classic work in its field. Pretty-Shield, a medicine woman of the Crows, she was one of the few who remembered what it was like before the white man came and the buffalo went away. From her account we learn about courtship, marriage. childbirth and the care of babies, about medicine-dreams, the care of the sick, and the dangers and joys of womanhood among men whose lives were spent hunting and fishing. Author: Frank B. Linderman.
