Presentation plate inside front cover. Great surviving example of this rare George Catlin American Indian title. LIFE AMONG THE INDIANS is a memoir of George Catlins experiences among the Indians of America. Originally written for a youthful audience, the authors mature narrative style, attention to detail and compelling subject matter makes this a timeless work that will appeal to readers of all ages. George Catlin (July 26, 1796 December 23, 1872) was an American painter, author, and traveler who specialized in portraits of Native Americans in the Old West.Catlin was the first white man to depict Plains Indians in their native territory. He made five trips into the West during the 1830s. There, at the edge of the frontier, the young artist produced the most vivid and penetrating portraits of his career. During later trips along the Arkansas, Red and Mississippi rivers, as well as visits to Florida and the Great Lakes, he produced more than 500 paintings and gathered a substantial collection of artifacts. Over the course of his career, Catlin visited more than fifty American Indian tribes, and also tribes in Central and South America. He witnessed sights that we can only imagine, or perhaps, if were lucky, see re-created in movies: Indians hunting buffalo, prairies on fire, Indians capturing wild horses on the Plains, sacred Indian rituals, ceremonies and dances. In the pages of LIFE AMONG THE INDIANS are Catlins fascinating descriptions of Indian villages, daily life, dress, ceremonial costumes, weapons, the social structure of the tribes, and much more all observed decades before the Indian wars of the later 19th century. In some instances, Catlin was one of the first white men the Indians he visited ever saw. You cant help but feel a sense of wonder as you read of the glorious scenes Catlin witnessed with his own eyes. Catlin writes in the Preface. Not content with this collection I had thus made and shown to the world, I started again in 1853 for Venezuela, in South America, and subsequently traversed British and Dutch Guiana, the Valley of the Amazon, and other parts of Brazil, the Andes, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, California, to the Aleutian Islands, the Pacific Coast to the mouth of the Columbia, across the Rocky Mountains to Santa Fe, by the Rio de Norte to Matamoros in Mexico, to Guatemala, to Yucatan, to Cuba, and back to the starting point. LIFE AMONG THE INDIANS is an incredible historical document. Catlin is remembered primarily for his paintings, but what he rendered in word and text is equally important. To give you a full appreciation for the breadth and scope of this amazing work, I have created a summary of the Contents below, followed by a selection of historical illustrations from this rare antique book. I hope youll take a moment to have a look.
