Through the compilation of over 200 images in this new book, taken from historical collections and her own work, author and photographer LaVerne Harrell Clark contributes to that same purpose. In it, she recreates the frontier life of settlers and the neighboring Sioux and Cheyenne Indians of the sand hills region of northwestern Nebraska. Accompanied by in-depth captions detailing Mari Sandozs life and works, these images illustrate how she came to hold an outstanding place as an American writer until her death in 1966. Born in 1896, in the free-land region of the Nebraska Panhandle, Sandoz was greatly influenced in her writing by the people who called at her homestead. Her acquaintances included Bad Arm, a Sioux Indian who fought at the Little Bighorn and was present at Wounded Knee, Old Cheyenne Woman, a survivor of both the Oklahoma and Fort Robinson conflicts, and William Buffalo Bill Cody, the legend of the Old West.
