Comments Plenty-coups: Chief of the Crows

  • David

    I visited Plenty-Coup's home while in Montana over the summer. I wanted to learn more about this great Chief of the Crows and the book was very interesting. His life was amazing and he was a friend to the white man. Plenty-Coup was educated, a very brave Chief and very smart in dealing with people. After visiting Mount Vernon, he wanted to donate 190 acres of his land in Montana as a memorial park to honor the Crow people. I recommend the book and a visit to the Park when in Montana. But watch o [...]

    This biographical information about Plenty-coups, the last principal chief recognized by the Crow, was originally compiled and published in the 1930's by Linderman. This book is the third reprint of the original story and contains a new introduction by Barney Old Coyote jr. and Phenocia Bauerle. An afterward by Timothy P. McCleary describes Plenty-coups' numerous contributions to both Native and national communities after the decline of the bison herds. Linderman first met Plenty-coups in 1892, [...]

    Unbelievable! I had to keep reminding myself that this was a biography and not a work of fiction! If ever you want to know what it was like to be a wild and free Indian warrior - unmarred by the ways of the white man - read Plenty Coups. I recommend it for all boys/men who love adventure and women who love reading about living a life of true freedom and honor. This book doesn't stop there, it also takes you through the changes and sorrow brought about by the coming of the white man. I had no ide [...]

    What an amazing account of life on the plains at the moment of great change when the Native peoples of North America were forced to make the transition from a natural species to a domesticated one, forced onto reservation life. This book provides a window into a time gone by. The most profound insight about this book to me is the stark contrast that it provides between the native life exemplified by the natural human species, and the life of the so-called civilized world today, and on top of tha [...]

    I certainly learned much about the Absarokees (Crows) through the stories told by their last chief. Worth reflecting upon:p. 131 "When people think deeply they are helped."p. 179 He is credited with saying, “Education is your most powerful weapon. With education you are the white man’s queal; without education you are his victim.”


  • Glenis Redmond

    Frank Linderman gets credit in my book for having the insight to chronicle this great leader. However, he inserts himself way to much in Plenty Coups story. He is definitely an outsider and it shows in the details, but I am grateful that he wrote the book, otherwise I would not be able to have access to Plenty Coups story.


  • Brenda

    This is a biography of Plenty Coups (1848-1932), the last hereditary chief of the Crow Indians. Plenty Coups lived in the time of the buffalo. He saw visions and foresaw the end of a way of life for his people, but he also saw the path that would be the transition for his people: Education.I really enjoyed this book.


  • Maal

    Funny Sad Nostalgic This book is a glorious recollection of a time gone past ana a people nearly made extinct. As the chief recounts his many epic battles learning experiences trial triumphs and failures you cannot help but be ensnared by his words.


  • Vincent Louis

    Invaluable resource for anyone who loves the American Indian culture.


  • Kevin

    complex ideas of time and history and death


  • Howard Mansfield

    Please see my short review of Radical Hope by Jonathan Lear.


  • Djorth

    Plenty-Coups was an extremely intelligent man. He realized that the old way of life was gone and encouraged his people to get educated in the white man's ways.


  • Joe

    One of the most interesting firsthand accounts of native life i have ever read.
