My Thoughts

Incredible book that ties together so well. It’s a look into what to do when threatened with cultural collapse by analyzing what Chief Plenty Coup of the Crow Indian Tribe did in the late 1800s. It’s a look into how virtues like courage can be maintained in completely different cultural contexts. It also contrasts the Crow with other tribes like the Sioux and how their leaders approached the coming onslaught. A short and fascinating book that I’ll be thinking about for a while.
