Description

"Hoig discusses a significant, and generally unknown, element of Cheyenne culture-the peace chiefs. Traditionally renowned for ferocity, fearlessness, and warlike tendencies, the Cheyenne also possessed a moralistic mentality in the Judeo-Christian vein which encouraged, among other things, strong family relations, a spirit of generosity, and provision for the needy. Peacekeeping was an integral part of this mentality....He provides valuable insights into this facet of Indian culture." Library Journal. "This is an informative and absorbing study of the Cheyenne chiefs as they tried to preserve the cultural and tribal integrity of their people....The writing style is direct and clear. Illustrations and photographs depict many of the chiefs and are a very useful complement to the text. Students of Western history should enjoy this book which will instruct readers as to why the Cheyennes commanded the respect of their friends and foes, red and white." Arizona and the West.
