Banyen's Description: 

This fully revised and expanded new edition of Indian Spirit, the popular American Indian photograph-and-quote book, features a new foreword by Shoshone Sun Dance Chief James Trosper.

While the nomadic American Indians of the Plains and forests have long since vanished, we can still glimpse the essence of that irreplaceable world in Indian Spirit, through its rare and beautiful photographs—some of which have never before been published—and in the moving words of some of the wisest leaders ever to have lived on this continent. Its pages open to us a world of honesty, generosity, self-mastery, courage in the face of adversity, nobility of soul, and of constant living awareness of the Creator in creation.

Indian Spirit is an elegy for the great chiefs. Their wisdom and beauty of soul shine through every page, wherein the heroic ideal of the traditional Indian, blending the qualities of warrior and priest, stands as a timeless example for all people.

Indian Spirit may be best summed up by one of the most important recent leaders of American Indian spirituality: “Words alone are inadequate to express spiritual realities. This book expresses the Red Indian spirit because it combines the best photographs ever taken of old-time chiefs with some of their best words. You can meet these old-timers and share their wisdom. People who read this book will better understand our sacred ways. Aho.”
Thomas Yellowtail, Crow Medicine Man and Sun Dance Chief

“One can get lost in contemplating these photographed faces, the weathered skin of natural men, the dignity which is the outward manifestation of inner strength, patience, and wisdom… As for the quotations: simple grandeur from those who lived on the very face of the earth and the edge of existence.” —James Alexander Thom
