 "A record of the last great Indian Council, participated in by eminent Indian chiefs from nearly every Indian reservation in the United States, together with the story of their lives as told by themselves, their speeches, folklore tales and their solemn farewell." Some of the stories told by individuals are high literature, e.g., Chief Two Moons telling of Custer's fall: “It was a September day. The hoarfrost had written the alphabet of the coming winter — there was a promise of snow." Previous owner's bookplate.
