This book is intended as both a guide to the identification of typical Teton metal objects and when and how they were used, and a study in the transition of the Teton Sioux Indians from a stone age people in the eighteenth century to a nation almost totally dependent by 1880 on white man's goods obtained from traders and through other channels. Soft cover, 118 pages, nearly 200 illustrations.
