Pretty-shield: Medicine Woman of the Crows
By Frank B. Linderman and Alma Hogan Snell. Softcover, 150 pages
Pretty-shield, the legendary medicine woman of the Crows, told her story to Frank Linderman through an interpreter and using sign language. She spoke of the simple games and dolls of an Indian childhood and the work of the girls and women. Through her eyes we come to understand courtship, marriage, childbirth and the care of babies, medicine-dreams, the care of the sick, and other facets of Crow womanhood.
