This is no ethnographic treatise, but the impressions of a sensitive observer, who reports what he has seen and heard...well written, striking photographs." - "Choice" First published in 1974 as "Indian and free: a contemporary portrait of life on a Chippewa reservation", "Red Lake Nation" updates the original material through 1991, following the transition from "closed reservation" to sovereign nation while completing the one-hundred-year cycle dating from the Treaty of 1889.
