The westward drive of the warlike Sioux Indians along a thousand miles of prairie and woodland, from the upper reaches of the Mississippi to the lower Powder River in Montana, is one of the epic migrations of history. From about 1660 to the first quarter of the nineteenth century, the Teton Sioux swept away all opposition: Arikaras, Ponkas, Crees, Crows, Cheyennes-all fell away and dispersed as the Sioux advanced, until the invaders ranged over a vast territory in the northwest, hunting buffalo and raiding their neighbors.

Comments to eBook RED CLOUD'S FOLK.
Original
I read this for genealogical purposes. OMG the comings and goings of the Oglala during the last few decades before their defeat! Kudos to the author for trying to get it all straight. A very complicated culture was going on there in the plains.

This is a valuable read and compliments Hyde's "Sioux Chronicles very well. I am extremely happy with the book it is in great condition. The book is in fabulous condition I am impressed

The shipping was good as was the packaging. This is an interesting topic for this writer, however, I would have preferred if it had been written by an American Indian, actually a Lakota.

As the title states, this is not a biography of Red Cloud. It is, instead, the history of his people-the Oglala-as far back as the middle of the 17th century. However, while Hyde's speculation on the early history is probably the most valuable part, the various migrations and splits of the Sioux are a little hard to follow and make for slow going. It is not until he reaches more familiar territory, from about the Grattan Fight on, that the pace picks up.
This work, originally written in the 1930's and updated in the late 50's appears to be very well researched. However it has it's flaws. Hyde has difficulty overcoming a certain cultural bias, and he has a habit of picking and choosing the information that most supports his point of view. For example, time and again, he laments the poor memory of Indians when it comes to relating their own history, and belittles them for mythologizing certain events at the expense of accuracy. However he insists that it was the Crazy Horse village which J.J. Reynolds attacked and destroyed on the Powder in 1876, and not a Cheyenne village as the Indians of the time asserted, and as is now widely accepted by historians. And in this case he bases his theory on the accounts of certain Indians who said that they saw Crazy Horse fleeing up the bluffs with a small child on his back. The notion of course is rediculous. Crazy Horse's own daughter had died by then, and the idea that the great war chief could come up with nothing better to do during an attack than pick up stray children makes no sense.
Hyde also asserts without doubt, that Crazy Horse, in his last days was planning to break out of the Red Cloud agency with his band, and was not simply escaping to Spotted Tail for sanctuary from his enemies. While this may be true, he has absolutely no evidence to base it on. Having said this, Hyde's habit of pronouncing opposing views as "blatantly absurd" is somewhat refreshing, and keeps the narrative more interesting.
Anyone who studies the Plains Indians must add this to their library, however, they should keep in mind, that it represents only one point of view.

Hyde began rsearch in the 1920s and published in 1930s. He had dug into agency records, other written sources, and interviewd Indian elders. He gives a good account of Indian policy and its effects on Lakota, and he is quick to criticize, siding with the Lakota most often, but giving little credit to Indian memory of historical events.
His style of writing is engaging, and he pulls no punchs in evaluating some of his sources as well as government agents and their policy.
