Pretty Shield

Recently finished Frank Linderman's PRETTY SHIELD. I highly recommend it.

The book is a collection of recollections from the Crow woman Pretty Shield, who lived around the time of the famous Crow Chief Plenty Coups.

What makes this book special is the woman's perspective and the details of daily life that only a woman can give.
