Raised among Native Americans, son of an Indian woman and the famed army scout, California Joe, Tahan lived a remarkable life across the span of the period known as the Indian Wars. He survived Custer's attack on Black Kettle's village on the Washita River, hunted buffalo when they still roamed in enormous herds across the plains, and won the heart of a beloved Indian maiden. Tahan later worked as a scout for the U.S. Army, learned English, ran with outlaws, and eventually settled down in white society as a minister and then a lecturer on the Indian life. His life makes for a fascinating study of Native American culture as it was being nearly extinguished by the westward expansion of the late 19th century. Told in loving detail, it's clear that the free life he led as a young man was central to who he became. This edition contains updated information about him after the book was written and an introduction by Arthur C. Parker, then State Archceologist of New York, and Curator of Ethnology, N. Y. State Museum.
