Publisher's Description

'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, Tohono 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 desert, and portraits that are both very real, and very romantic. This is Danny Lyon's first major serial documentary since Conversations with the Dead. It is a form that he pioneered and that he is a master of. The pictures and captions lead us through the roundup and containment of the first Americans on the reservations where they reside today. The work captures a people and a sad beauty that is at the core of our history and our country. The introduction is by Pulitzer prize winner Larry McMurtry.
