In his old age, Plenty-coups (1848–1932), the last hereditary chief of the Crow Indians, told the moving story of his life to Frank B. Linderman, the well-known western writer whonbsp;had befriended him. Plenty-coups is a classic account of the nomadic, spiritual, and warring life of Plains Indians before they were forced onto reservations. Plenty-coups tells of the great triumphs and struggles of his own life: his powerful medicine dreams, marriage, raiding and counting coups against the Lakotas, fighting alongside the U.S. Army, and the death of General Custer. This new edition allows readers to appreciate more fully the accomplishments and rich legacy of Plenty-coups. A previously unpublished essay by Linderman tells of his meeting and working with the chief. An introduction by Phenocia Bauerle and Barney Old Coyote Jr., both members of the Crow Nation, speaks to the enduring importance of Plenty-coups for the Crow people in the twenty-first century; an afterword by Timothy P. McCleary, also of the Crow Nation, highlights the pivotal role Plenty-coups played during the early reservation years after the buffalo had gone; an essay by Celeste River examines the special relationship between the old chief and Linderman; a map of Plenty-coups's world highlights places named in the story; a glossary of Crow words and concepts found in the story draws upon the latest orthographic standards and contemporary translation; and a photo gallery showcases both Plenty-coups at different stages of his life and unforgettable scenes of his world.… (mais)

"Plenty-Coups: Chief of the Crows" is a wonderful autobiographyical, as-told-to-the-author FRank B. Linderman, no-holds-barred account of the pre-reservation life of Plenty-Coups, the last great Chief of the Crow Nation. Plenty-Coups talks about his childhood, youth and manhood in the tribe's pre-reservation days and leads into the era when the Crow allied themselves with the U.S. Army against neighboring tribes. The Cheyenne and Lakota Sioux had long been engaged in warfare with the Crow in an attempt to thoroughly destroy the Crow and take over their lands. As Chief, Plenty-Coups successfully led his tribe from their Plains Indian life into reservation life---so successful that the Crow retained most all their land. They never fought against the US government. His Crow contemporaries and more recent tribal members included in this "New Edition," 2002, accord him great honor as their most important Chief in history.

Plenty-Coups' voice is clearly heard through the written text. His joy in childhood and warring activities is palpable, as well as entirely candid about topics that often offend European-American sensibilities. Plenty-Coups has provided the reader with one of the most real accounts of Plains Indian lifeways in the North American continent before Indians were relegated to reservations. The book covers Crow childhood games, processes of teaching skills for adulthood, youthful exploits, spiritual life, marriage and wars for survival of the tribe. Plenty-Coups ends his story at the point when the tribe was limited to a reservation by the US government. Linderman continues the story with information on how Plenty Coup led his tribe into the new world of a Euro-American dominant society, culture and government.

Plenty-Coups' spoken autobiography recorded with the observations of author Frank B. Linderman is a necessary read before beginning author Jonathan Lear's book "Radical Hope: Ethics in the Face of Cultural Devastation." This latter book is well worth reading by those who are interested in the intersection of cultural anthropology, philosophy and ethics.

I was nudged to read this classic by an article in Montana Quarterly. It is a rare glimpse into the life and motivations of the chief of the Crow Indians back when the Plains were filled with buffalo and roving Flathead enemies... The illustrations in the original are authentic drawings of Native Americans back in the day.... probably not politically correct today.
