In Bad Medicine and Good, Wilbur Sturtevant Nye collects forty-four stories covering Kiowa history from the 1700s through the 1940s, all gleaned from interviews with Kiowas, and from the notes of Captain Hugh L Scott at Fort Sill.
This book covers such topics as the organization and conduct of a raiding party, the brave deeds of war chiefs, the treatment of white captives, the Grandmother gods, the Kiowa sun dance, and the problems of adjusting to white society.
One of the great tribes of the Southwest Plains, the Kiowas were militantly defiant toward white intruders in their territory and killed more during seventy-five years of raiding than any other tribe.
This book is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the wear on the dust jacket.
Bad Medicine and Good is an excellent addition to your Native American collection or home library. Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more pictures, ask.

When your shopping for a new novel, most readers don't imagine that you can do it in a eco-friendly way. In every area of your life you can live a sustainable lifestyle even while shopping for new to you vintage books!
Sustainable living is accomplished by making choices that reduce our environmental impact by making fundamental changes to counteract climate change and decrease ecological destruction.
Buying vintage anything is essential because recycling and reusing items means fewer polluting resources are being used to make brand new books, kitchen items, bookends, and more.
Approximately 640,000 tons of books are deposited in the landfill annually at an average weight of 4 pounds each. This averages out to about 320 million books discarded each year that are not recycled. Wow!
As avid readers become more conscious of the environmental consequence of disposable books, we are looking for a more sustainable way to shop.
Our vintage books are authentic, sustainable, and unique. So make a difference - your way.
All of my vintage books are sourced from personal collections found in estate sales.
