Sherman Sage (ca. 1844?1943) was an unforgettable Arapaho man who witnessed profound change in his community and was one of the last to see the Plains black with buffalo. As a young warrior, Sage defended his band many times, raided enemy camps, saw the first houses go up in Denver, was present at Fort Laramie for the signing of the 1868 treaty, and witnessed Crazy Horse?s surrender. Later, he visited the Ghost Dance prophet Wovoka and became a link in the spread of the Ghost Dance religion to other Plains Indian tribes. As an elder, Old Man Sage was a respected, vigorous leader, walking miles to visit friends and family even in his nineties. One of the most interviewed Native Americans in the Old West, Sage was a wellspring of information for both Arapahos and outsiders about older tribal customs.ø ø Anthropologist Jeffrey D. Anderson gathered information about Sage?s long life from archives, interviews, recollections, and published sources and has here woven it into a compelling biography. We see different sides of Sage?how he followed a traditional Arapaho life path; what he learned about the Rocky Mountains and Plains; what he saw and did as outsiders invaded the Arapahos? homeland in the nineteenth century; how he adjusted, survived, and guided other Arapahos during the early reservation years; and how his legacy lives on today. The remembrances of Old Man Sage?s relatives and descendants of friends make apparent that his vision and guidance were not limited to his lifetime but remain vital today in the Northern Arapaho tribe.

Amanda Aaron, a woman of mixed Ojibwe and white heritage, spent twenty years living in Milwaukee, away from her home and family. After the deaths of her parents, a short-lived marriage to an abusive non-Indian, and finally a tragic accident in which her friends were killed, she is pushed into a state of depression. Acting on her doctor’s orders, she returns to her grandparents’ cabin on her home reservation in northern Wisconsin, seeking the solitude she needs to recover. Migizi, the Eagle, the Grandfather’s messenger, gifts Amanda with a feather, then visits her one night in her bedroom. Wanting to believe it was a dream, but knowing it was not, Amanda seeks the advice and counsel of Elders on the reservation who, in turn, introduce Amanda to Noah, a spiritual man who can guide and advise her as her life becomes complicated with unwanted responsibilities. Eventually, Amanda is forced to admit that the void she has been experiencing can only be filled by a return to the reservation—a life that has always enriched her and provided her with the needed strength to achieve her goals.
