This offering has popped up on the DLE page. Although of average size with underwhelming illustrations, I will probably buy one because the subject interests me. EP's previous DLEs with a Native American theme (McKenney, Schoolcraft, Catlin) have been first class productions and have sold well.

Although this DLE hasn't generated an explosion of interest in this forum, I thought I should report that I am more pleased with it than I expected. Most of the illustrations are old 19th century photos that would not have been of high quality originally, but they look better on the page than they do on the website. The print is crisp and large enough to read easily. The cover design is attractive and the feel of the leather appealing. All in all, it is probably worth $276 to someone who is interested in Native Americana or western U.S. history.

And before anyone asks, no, I'm not going to try to post photos. My camera, my lighting, and my general incompetence in the area of photography would not do them justice.

I have it. Very beautiful little book, well made. My parents and EP made me very happy on Christmas.

For those of you that own this, is it the brighter green or the subdued green of the updated photos?

It's the light green.

Definitely the light green. This book is very attractive and the story was really incredible to read. Thickest paper I've ever felt and it gave me a real reading pleasure. It profusely illustrated throughout and I loved each and every illustration in this book.

My heart is broken. I was supposed to receive my copy of Sitting Bull today, but I was not home when FedEx tried to deliver it. Now I have to wait until tomorrow.
Oh well, worse things could happen. ;-)

I ordered this for my Father who makes donations every year to one of the Native American/Indian funds ... He hasn't seen it yet (and since we live in different states and I delivered to my parents house ... I have not seen it yet either) ... but from everyone's posts It seems well received and I'm sure he will be happy with it.

And I too feel slightly depressed when missing a delivery ... that's why now ... I call FED-EX days before my delivery and have them hold it at a FED-EX office three blocks away from me ... so I know I can get it the minute it delivers.

these "real world" problems are so tough ... lol

When you go to Fedex Tracking, you have the option of having your package held at another location. Here in Tulsa all the Walgreen’s serve that function, and it seems like there are 3 of them on every block!

>13 jroger1: and >14 Betelgeuse: Somehow I should have know that, but obviously I didn't. ;-) Many thanks. I am more experienced with UPS and USPS.

By the way, I am most pleased with my Sitting Bull DLE.
