Octavo (20.5 cm), pp. 278. Reddish-brown cloth boards with black titling and tipi design. Brown and tan illustrated jacket. Several plates of black and white photos. Previous owner's name on front free endpaper. Bleeding from jacket flaps onto endpapers, age-toning and bumping. Jacket front is detached but held together by mylar. A scarce copy of a great literary and historical fraud. Despite the book's foreword by Irvin S. Cobb claiming this is a "true book about the true American Indian," the author was exposed soon after publication to be the son of a North Carolina janitor rather than a Blackfoot chief. (Smith. Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance: The Glorious Imposter) Dust jacket present. First Edition.
