"The Sioux Indians came into my life before I had any preconceived notions about them," writes Mari Sandoz about the visitors to her family homestead in the Sandhills of Nebraska when she was a child. These Were the Sioux, written in her last decade, takes the reader far inside a world of rituals surrounding puberty, courtship, and marriage, as well as the hunt and the battle.

From Our Editors

The Sioux Indians came into my life before I had any preconceived notions about them, or about anyone else. In our family no formal pattern of philosophical or religious thought was thrust upon the children, and I was left free to learn about our Indian friends as I did about the rest of our neighborhood of mixed beliefs, languages and origins-homeseeking immigrant Poles, Czechs, Irish, Dutch, French, Germans, Danes, Swiss, a few Serbs, a Bulgar, a Mohammedan, a negro and a smattering of so-called native Americans, including Texas cowboys.

Editorial Reviews

"It clearly demonstrates the understanding of Indians that can be offered by a gifted, sensitive writer who has had extensive first-hand knowledge of the Indian people about whom she writes." —J. C. Ewers, Saturday Review of Literature
