Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0030226864, Paperback)

This case study traces the Cheyenne Indians from their first contact with the French explorer LaSalle in 1680. The book then follows their exodus from Minnesota under pressure from the Sioux, Cel, and Ojibwa; their attempt to gain a foothold in eastern South Dakota and the middle Missouri River; and their final movement into the high western plains in the first half of the 19th century.
