Black Elk Speaks
1 journaler for this copy...
1972 Pocket Books paperback, with a $1.50 cover price, of the 1932 Oglala Sioux memoir, "Being the Life Story of a Holy Man of the Oglala Sioux" as told through John G. Neihardt (Flaming Rainbow), illustrated by Standing Bear. This is from that interesting period in which Native American history transitioned from Wild West conquest and subjugation, to popular culture theatrics, and before the Marxist Woke supremacist Identity Politics ruined it for historical truthful analysis for all time to come going forward. History is worth preserving, as it was earlier told by those who had been there. I found this copy yesterday in the Maybelle Little Free Library.
Edit December 8, 2021: This was okay, but I just skimmed to end for time. I currently have this ranked at #799 on my ranked list of best-read books lately.
