First printing. 113 pp., small 4to. Cloth in illustrated dust-jacket. Photos by Alice Snearly and Lon Kelley; text by Noyes with the assistance of Daniel J. Gelo; foreword by Larry McMurtry. Descriptions of thirty-one photographs, with a historical introduction and a note on the images. Faint toning to page edges, otherwise essentially as new in a fine jacket with very light soiling. Warmly inscribed by the author to an old friend at the time of publication. Item #3705

An investigation of a collection of anonymous glass-plate negatives purchased by McMurtry and loaned to the University of Texas; Noyes, with the help of Comanche scholar Gelo, were able to identify the photographers, subjects, and settings. The images "preserve the 'interim' generation of Comanches, including Quanah Parker and two of his wives, whose fathers were the last to hunt buffalo on the Great Plains and who themselves endured reservation life and force moves." Uncommon signed.

Price: $50.00
