Plains Indian Art: The Pioneering Work of John C. Ewers is based on years of field research with Native Americans, careful scholarship, and exhaustive firsthand studies of museum collections around the world, Ewers’s publications have long been required reading for anyone interested in the cultures of the Plains peoples, especially their visual art traditions. He traces the history of the pictorial art of Plains peoples from images on rock surfaces to the walls of modern museums. Available for the first time in book form, the influential cultural and historical studies collected here—together with all 140 illustrations that Ewers selected for them, including many now in full color—remain vital to our understanding of the Native peoples of the Great Plains.
