The Sioux
Life and Customs of a Warrior Society

By:  Royal B. Hassrick

"Until now there has not been a good popular ethnography of any of the Dakota groups.  Hassrick has admirably filled this need for the Teton Dakota.  He knows his people well and has written a book that is a must for anyone interested in the Sioux or in the Plains Indians in general." -- Natural History

"According to its foreword, 'This book attempts to present Sioux life as it was in the era of its greatest vigor and renown--the brief span of less than fifty years from about 1830 to 1870.'  It does more than this; it traces the origins of the Sioux and brings them up to the present day, explaining the author's opinion of why this tribe has not been assimilated into our Anglo-Saxon culture.  Every phase of life is covered -- art, war, religion, child rearing, sex, humor, and dress.  This is an excellent addition to this series and is highly recommended for all subject collections." --Library Journal
