Product description

Product Description

William Philo Clark's classic work on Native American signs and culture is still considered a monumental achievement. Published posthumously after the young Clark died in 1884, it covers the words and phrases of many tribes.

Clark was with General George Crook in late summer of 1876 during the Sioux War and later served on staff assignments for General Phil Sheridan.

Now you can use this reference to learn signs and compare them to American Sign Language.

For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

From the Back Cover

In 1876 and 1877, Captain W.P. Clark commanded a detachment of Indian scouts--including Pawnees, Shoshones, Arapahoes, Cheyennes, Crows, and Sioux--who conversed in sign language. The scouts patiently taught Clark the sign system, which he patiently recorded in this book. This book corrects the sentimental and brutal stereotypes of Indians that led to much misunderstanding.
