The Sioux: Life and Customs of a Warrior Society
Royal B. Hassrick

For many people the Sioux, as warriors and as buffalo hunters, have become the symbol of all that is Indian — colorful figures endowed with great fortitude and powerful vision. They were the heroes of the Great Plains, and they were the villains, too.

Royal B. Hassrick attempts to describe the ways of the people, the patterns of their behavior, and the concepts of their imagination. Uniquely, he has approached the subject from the Sioux's own point of view, giving their own interpretation of their world in the era of its greatest vigor and renown — the brief span of years from about 1830 to 1870.

In addition to printed sources, the author has drawn from the observations and records of a number of Sioux who were still living when this book was projected, and were anxious to serve as links to the vanished world of their forebears.
