Description

From the text ... 'The Sioux and Cheyenne traditionally set fire to the prairie as they moved their summer camps in pursuit of game. ...The Great Sioux War provides a sharp contrast in how two different cultures with diverse values and objectives utilized fire. ...Many fires set by the Sioux and Cheyenne were expressly intended to disrupt enemy movements. ...'The West is dead my friend but writers hold the seed and what they saw will live and grow again to those who read.' -C.M. Russell, 1917'
