Description

From the publisher: "Danny Lyon has found his way to the great places on the plains and in the desert--the places where the glory lived: Heart Butte, Little Bighorn, Rosebud, White River, Gila River, San Carlos, Standing Rock, Lame Deer, Pine Ridge. He has photographed Sioux and Cheyenne, Apache, Tphono O'odham. In fidelity to, and in the context of their ancient places, his subjects preserve a hard-worn dignity. Clear your eyes and look." -- Larry McMurtry. "Danny Lyon has again taken his camera to an America unknown to most of us, and by doing so he has again helped define who we are. Spending four years visiting the Sioux, Apache, and Western tribes, he has returned with haunting pictures of the plains and deser, and portraits that are both very real and romanitc. This is Danny Lyon's first major serial documentary since Conversations with the Dead."
